The Messiah University Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Jim Colonna and the Messiah University Trumpet Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. William Stowman, were selected to perform at the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association state convention this past spring.  This is an honor reserved for the finest performing ensembles in the state, and it allowed both groups to perform for an audience of music educators and student musicians. Congratulations to both ensembles and to their outstanding directors!
