Five students represent PHS at state music festival

Five students represented Petersburg High School at last weekend’s All-State Music Festival at Bartlett and West high schools in Anchorage. Two singers in mixed choir, two in the treble choir and one band member participated in three days of rehearsals capped off by a performance Saturday night. It’s only the second time in the past 16 years that PHS has sent that many performers to the event. Petersburg had the most choir singers at the festival among Southeast schools. Joe Viechnicki talked with music teacher Matt Lenhard and some of the students who made the trip.
