Seneca Valley musicians recently fine-tuned their skills as they prepared for a special performance with instrumentalists from other local schools.

Those advancing include sophomores Elizabeth Browne and Morgan Roithner; juniors Isaac Hixon, Isabella Muthler, Jake Pieszak and Ava Platt; and senior Tristan Conrad.

Students worked under the esteemed conductor Jungho Kim from the University of North Carolina Greensboro, culminating in a beautiful performance the evening of February 9.

All participating musicians included Elizabeth Browne – violin, Tristan Conrad – cello, Issac Hixon – French horn, Isabella Muthler – viola, Dylan Neal – violin, Jake Pieszak – violin, Ava Platt – viola, Grace Riggle – violin, Morgan Roithner – viola, Madelyn Tresky – violin and Charlotte Davis – violin.
