District 12 Band @ Radnor HS

February 13, 2020 - February 15, 2020



Our guest conductor for this year’s festival is Dr. Virginia Allen, Founder and Artistic Director Emerita of the Philadelphia Wind Symphony. She is a conductor, music educator, arranger, and consultant in Philadelphia and an adjunct faculty member at The Julliard School. Dr. Allen will be a rewarding and memorable experience for all of the students. I have included a copy of her bio in this packet. Dr. Allen has chosen a wonderful, exciting and demanding program. She and I are confident that our students in District 12 will excel!
