2023-2024 District and County Band
Sophomore Katerina Geiter earned a spot at the PMEA District 7 Band Festival, and over two dozen students will perform at the LLMEA High School and Middle School County Band Festival in February.
The band program at Lampeter-Strasburg School District is only one example of the excellent music department. This year, over two dozen middle and high school band members will perform at the county level, and one student participated in the eight-county district band festival.
Katerina Geiter plays the clarinet and has advanced to the district level in the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA). She performed with other exceptional musicians at the District 7 South Band Festival at Ephrata High School on January 12–13.
This year, the Lancaster-Lebanon Music Educators Association (LLMEA) High School and Middle School County Band South Festival will include 30 student musicians chosen from L-S. The event is scheduled for Saturday, February 3, at Lancaster Mennonite High School. The event will wrap up with a public performance at 4 p.m. Tickets are $7 at the door and may only be purchased with cash.
Congratulations to Katerina, and the LSHS and Martin Meylin County Band participants!
