GREENVILLE, Pa. - Feb. 11, 2018 - PRLog -- Three student-musicians at Thiel College, a leading liberal arts college in northwest Pennsylvania, have been selected to participate in the 71st Pennsylvania Intercollegiate Band Concert from 2:30-4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 25.

Representing Thiel College (https://www.thiel.edu/) are

• Katherine Orczeck '18 (tuba), of Roaring Spring, Pa. She is a business administration and accounting major and a 2014 graduate of Central (Pa.) High School;
• Alexandra Pantone '18 (alto saxophone), of Pittsburgh, Pa. She is a secondary education/math major and a 2014 graduate of Baldwin (Pa.) High School; and
• Cassie Gray '20 (flute), of Leechburg, Pa. She is a conservation biology major and a 2016 graduate of Leechburg Area High School.

This is Orczeck's third time participating in this festival, and it is the first appearance for Pantone and Gray. The students will work with world-renowned composer and George Mason University School of Music Director of Concert Bands Mark Camphouse. The three-day event culminates in a Sunday afternoon concert.

"I am so excited that three of our talented band students have this opportunity. I am hard pressed to think of a more exciting college band experience than PAICB. What an amazing ensemble!" Director of Bands and Professor of Music Andrew Erb said. "Mark Camphouse is a musical hero of mine. I am so thrilled that these students will have the opportunity to work with him over these three days. They will never forget this."

Founded in 1948, the Pennsylvania Intercollegiate Band Festival is the longest continually running intercollegiate band festival in the United States. Each year, student musicians are nominated by their band director and chosen to participate by a selection committee. A prominently known guest conductor is selected to compile a challenging program of music for the festival. For one weekend, selected musicians and their band directors travel to a host school for two days of intense rehearsal. Their work begins on Friday and culminates in a recorded concert on Sunday.
