Cause for celebration. 17 Altoona Wind Ensemble members pose for a photo before the PMEA District band. 16 members are continuing to regions.

On Feb. 22, 16 members of the Wind Ensemble will be going to Bald Eagle High School to participate in PMEA (Pennsylvania Music Education Association) regional band festival. 

“It’s such an amazing experience, it will push me out of my comfort zone, and make me a better player. Plus I love getting to see new places, spend time with my friends and meet more musicians,” sophomore Theo Kessling said. 

The concert will be Feb. 24 at 11:30 a.m. at Bald Eagle. Tickets will be available at the door.

Madison Aboud, Associate Editor
My name is Madison Aboud and I am a sophomore at AAHS. This is my second year on Mountain Echo staff and my first year as an Associate Editor. In Jr. high, I was a reporter on the AAJHS Livewire. In my free time, you can find me reading or singing along to my favorite show-tunes. I’ve always had a passion for writing. My ultimate goal after high school is to become a professional journalist. Outside of Mountain Echo, I am in band, chorus, vocal ensemble, student council and Friends of Rachel. I strive to make sure students of AAHS are finding out everything they need to know within a timely manner. I can’t wait for another great year!
