13 Students Selected to Allegheny Valley Honors Bands
Thirteen Fox Chapel Area School District students were selected by video audition for the 2021 Allegheny Valley senior and junior high honors bands. A total of 197 7th-12th grade student-musicians from the Avonworth, Fox Chapel Area, Hampton, North Allegheny, Northgate, North Hills, Pine-Richland, Riverview, and Shaler Area school districts auditioned for the groups, and 117 were selected. The students chosen from Fox Chapel Area were senior Nathaniel Kisslinger; sophomores Lawrence Liu, Silas Owens, and Lans Taylor; freshmen Claire Heary and Chloe Kim; eighth-graders Malik Choset, Moonyoung Hwang, Alex Kim, Varad Sant, and Timothy Ye; and seventh-graders Joanna Li and Joshua Shah.
Although a concert was unable to be held this year due to the pandemic, all of the students selected were mentioned in a special recognition program and received medals and certificates.
