Get to Know The PVHS Choir

The choral program at Pequea Valley High School is highly regarded. The Concert Choir’s singers are in grades 9-12, and account for one-quarter of the entire

student body. Many students in the ensemble are annually selected to attend County, District, Regional, State, All-East, and National honors choirs. Under Mr.

Bankert’s direction, and his predecessors, the 40-member Chamber Singers have received Superior Ratings and “Most Outstanding Choir” awards in many

adjudicated festivals throughout Toronto Canada, New Jersey, Virginia, and Boston. They have twice been ranked in the top-ten at the North American

Musical Festival, and are frequently accepted to perform at the Pennsylvania

Music Educator’s Association (PMEA), the American Choral Director’s Association(ACDA), and the National Association for Music Educators (NAfME) conferences.

Other accolades include invitations to perform for Governor Tom Ridge’s inauguration, performances in the Basilica in Baltimore, St. John the Divine in

NYC, and the Candlelight Processional at Disney World.
