Musicians perform at capital building

On Monday March 20, 2017 the chamber orchestra and vocal ensemble took a trip to Harrisburg. On this trip the students performed for the workers in the building. Although Altoona did perform on Monday, there were many other schools there. This trip was set by the chamber orchestra director Kelly Detwiler. The chamber orchestra and the vocal ensemble take trips to Harrisburg every few years.  When performing at the capital building, they have performed in many different places. This year they performed in the east wing.

After the members were done performig students took a tour of the capital building and got to see various other school perform as well. Photo by Alex Daversa
