About lforbes

Hello Everyone! First and foremost - I am so excited and honored to be a part of Penn Manor School District's music department. I wanted to share a little bit of my background with all of you so here it goes: I've lived in Philadelphia for the past 6 years and graduated from Temple University with a BM in Music Education and piano. I love all sorts of music and believe it's important to recognize all genres. In addition to singing and playing the piano, I have a passion for art history and traveling to see ancient ruins. I'm a true lover of the arts! I'm looking forward to an awesome year of singing and making beautiful music at Penn Manor HS, Manor MS, and Marticville MS. Let's make it a year to remember!

NYC Senior Trip UPDATE!

Music seniors,
Last week we informed you that Aladdin tickets were SOLD OUT.  The overwhelming majority of you voted to see Wicked.  I was able to secure group sales discounted tickets to Wicked. The price per ticket is $115. As noted in the paperwork you signed, the trip cost COULD be raised or lowered depending on tickets and amount of students attending (bus ticket). As of now, the breakdown cost for the bus is $65.00 per person. With the addition of your show ticket, the trip total is now $180. We are working on ways to get the price of the bus lowered for you, so if that happens, hopefully the price will go down a bit.
WITH THAT SAID…… your next payment of $75 will be due on January 2, 2018.  CHECKS ONLY please – made payable to Penn Manor Orchestra Boosters (PMOB).
Thank you and have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving.

Manor Singers Audition Results for 2017-18 School Year

BRAVO to all who auditioned for manor singers. It was a tough decision this year because so many students were very prepared and performed beautifully. Please know that I am extremely proud of all who auditioned and I did not make the final ensemble decision lightly. If you did not make the ensemble for next school year, I urge you to try again for the following year. There were so many more students that I would have loved to take for the ensemble if numbers would have allowed. If you would like feedback about your audition, please schedule a homeroom time to meet with Mrs. Ciemiewicz.
