Four students from the Pleasant Valley School District (PVSD) were selected as members of musical honor groups for 2016.
Donovan O’Brien from Santa Rosa Technology Magnet School placed second chair cello in the 2016 All-Southern California Middle School Honor Orchestra. He performed with the Honor Orchestra January 22-24. Donovan is the first string player from PVSD to be selected for an honor group since the PVSD Youth Arts Academy began offering strings in 2008.
Trumpet player Colby Adams from Las Colinas Middle School, and clarinet players Devin Burkhart from Santa Rosa Technology Magnet School and Edison Hanchey from Las Colinas Middle School were selected as members of the Ventura County Middle School Honor Band.
Colby Adams is one of only a few students who have been members of the middle school honor band for all three years.
Both the middle school and the high school honor bands will be performing at Buena High School on Sunday, February 28th at 2 pm. PVSD has had students selected for the middle school honor band every year since its inception in 2006.
Congratulations to these young musicians!
