“This was a fun trip, loaded with lots of places to go, things to see, and the kids performed wonderfully,” Penn Orchestra Instructor Anne Tschetter. “ We scored fourth overall, ahead of all the Texas schools, but behind the California Schools.


“The performance was not only a great experience, but confirmed what talented students we have at Penn!” Tschetter said.
