Photo submitted to Times Observer Five students from Eisenhower High School, under the direction of choral director Ms. Joy McMonigal, recently participated in the PMEA (Pennsylvania Music Educators’ Association) District 2 Chorus at Meadville Area Senior High School. Students were put through a rehearsal process to practice and learn their individual parts both with their director and on their own, before auditioning before a panel of Choral Directors from across the area. Their performance and music preparation dictates whether they will advance to Regional Choir. All five of the students participating from Eisenhower placed in the top of their sections and will be participating at PMEA Regional Chorus at McDowell High School in Erie. After two days of auditions and rehearsals, 160 students from across half the state of Pennsylvania will perform a concert at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 3. Tickets are available at the door.

Church trip

The North Warren Presbyterian Church is sponsoring a trip to the Sight & Sound Theatre production of “Jesus” in Lancaster, Pa. on May 14-15.

“Jesus” is an action-packed musical stage adventure — a journey alongside the most important person to ever walk the Earth, and the everyday people whose lives he transformed over.

Audiences will experience the story come to life on a three-sided stage, featuring one of the largest state-of-the-art LED screens in a theatrical venue — along with Sight & Sound’s famous animals, on stage and in the aisles.

The trip is all-inclusive for $250 per person, which includes transportation, evening meal, hot breakfast, show ticket, buffet lunch after the show, taxes and gratuities.

There are 12 remaining seats on the bus.

If the bus is sold out, a waiting list will be established. A $50 deposit and reservation form are required, and deposit will be returned if no space becomes available.

For information, or for a reservation form, contact Gary Olson at 723-3704, the church office at 723-5060, or visit
