Percussion, auxiliary band units to compete in Penn-Trafford indoor shows

Jeff Himler

The Penn-Trafford High School Music Department will sponsor two competitive band shows Feb. 23 in the high school gym that will feature color guard, baton, dance and percussion units from area high schools, universities and independent groups.

A Tournament of Bands Indoor Association show will begin at 10 a.m., with 44 groups scheduled to perform through about 4:30 p.m. An awards presentation will immediately follow.

Twenty-six groups are expected to take part in a Three Rivers Winter Ensemble Association show, from 5:20 p.m. to 9 p.m. Awards will be presented at 9:10 p.m.

Spectators should enter through Door No. 30, near the middle of the main parking lot, 3381 State Route 130. Admission for each show costs $10 at the door, with discounted rates for students and seniors.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks will be available in the school cafeteria, along with candy grams, a bake sale and a basket auction.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
