mUSICIANS Weaver & Smith with their instruments announcing their honors band status

PHS Music Director, Mr. Jeffrey Moore was truly proud to share:

Congratulations to Senior Band Members: Zach Smith and Wil Weaver for being selected for the All-South Jersey Region Band & Orchestra.  The Palmyra duo went through a thorough audition process against the best musicians from the entire South Jersey Region.  Both had great auditions and both have positions of pride in the upcoming concerts:

  • Wil finished 8th on Trombone and was selected for the Symphonic Band & Orchestra. 
  • Zach finished 3rd on Percussion and was selected for the Wind Ensemble & Orchestra. 

They will perform in concerts in January at Rowan University in Glassboro. Wil and Zach, who are coincidentally, our 2022 PHS Marching Band Drum Majors, qualified for multiple performances on stage.
