The Virginia Music Educators Association (VMEA) selected 38 Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) high school students for the 2022 All-Virginia Band, Chorus, and Orchestra. In addition, 14 students were selected as alternates for the choir.

“Selection for an All-Virginia ensemble represents the highest honor that the Virginia Music Educators Association can give to a student and is an extraordinarily rare achievement,” said Dr. Ed Stephenson, supervisor of the arts in PWCS. “It is a testament to the dedication of our music educators, hard work, and discipline of our students, and the steadfast support of our parents.”

With this honor, students recently participated in a two-and-a-half-day series of rehearsals, featuring a guest conductor, and participated in a full group performance.
