On Friday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 3rd, three Twin Valley High School students participated in the Annual Honors Orchestra at Lebanon Valley College - Reid Simmons, Grade 11, Violin; Lilly Leonowitz, Grade 12, Viola; and Rhiannon Pryor, Grade 12, Cello (pictured below).  Honors Orchestra participants included students from 28 schools traveling from Berks, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Montgomery, Somerset, and York counties. Conductors included Dr. Johannes Dietrich of Lebanon Valley College and Dr. Anna Binneweg of both Londontowne Symphony Orchestra and Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland.  The concert repertoire included pieces by C. Hubert Parry, Arthur Duff, Edward Grieg, Antonio Vivaldi, Richard Pearson Thomas, and Giochino Rossini.

Our three students were selected to be part of a small ensemble for the performance of the Vivaldi Concerto in B minor.  2016 Twin Valley graduate Alyssa Lahoda was one of the featured soloists.
