A total of 200 students were chosen to take part in this festival from Lancaster and Lebanon counties, and the guest conductor will be Dr. Robert Bigley from Lancaster Bible College.
In addition, Kirsten Corneilson (Alto II), Juliana Wardle (Alto II) and Emily Weaver (Alto II) successfully auditioned and were chosen to attend the District 7 Chorus Festival to be held January 10-11, 2014 at Central Dauphin High School.
