Dear PMEA District 8,


I hope this message finds you well over the holiday weekend. As the new school year begins, I am thrilled to welcome you back to another exciting year of music education within PMEA District 8. I want to extend my gratitude and appreciation to our Immediate Past President, Ryan Bulgarelli, for guiding our district through two challenging recovery years after the pandemic; his insightful leadership was invaluable to all of us. 

New Teachers/Positions
If you have not done so already, please take a moment to reach out to your County Representative with any updated information about new teachers at your school. We want to make sure we have the most up-to-date information for everyone, and your help is greatly appreciated. 

Brianna Erdmann, Bradford-Sullivan
Amanda Haney, Lycoming
Lisa Orner, Snyder-Union
Carol Ann McCloy, Tioga
Kevin Styer, Northumberland
Anthony McDonnell, Columbia-Montour


PMEA Membership 

If you have not renewed your PMEA membership, please do so as soon as possible. This is especially important if you are a district officer, a fest/festival host, or someone who wishes to have your students participate in this year’s fests/festivals. If you have questions about the status of your membership, I am happy to check on that for you. 


I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead, and I am looking forward to the next two years serving as president and having the opportunity to get to know more members of our music community. If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. 

All the best, 

Samuel Robinson 
Director of Choirs
Williamsport Area High School 

PMEA District 8 President
