PASD Students Excelling In the Arts! Congratulations to PAHS String Ensemble cellist Paige Ritter for her participation in the Chesco Pops summer concert series “American Celebration!” The Chesco Pops is comprised of 65 talented and dedicated musicians from all over the Delaware Valley. For this series, several outstanding music students were invited to play alongside the pros and their teachers. The students learned the music, rehearsed twice with the Chesco Pops Orchestra, and performed in two concerts on July 29 and July 30. Congratulations to Paige, and thanks for representing PASD so well!

Both bands won first place and Superior Ratings. Ensembles from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia performed. They played for judges that included Dr. Andrew Koch, the Director of Bands at the University of Virginia. The judges listen with the music in front of them. That allows them to make specific written and taped comments that we review as a band. We all know what an amazing band we have, but it’s always nice to have it confirmed by the experts! Saturday S E PT Marissa Olalde, a PAHS senior has the honor of having her poster creation chosen as the winner for the 8th Annual Blue’s Festival! Her design will be featured on the festival event posters and t-shirts. The Blues Festival will be held September 9th in downtown Phoenixville. Congratulations Marissa!!
