The annual Martin L. Mattei Middle School Band’s Spring Concert was held at Pittston Area High School Auditorium on Wednesday, May 29. Performances were given by students in the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grades. The program offers students the opportunity to express themselves and experience an appreciation for enjoying music through a musical instrument. The band is under the direction of Robert J. Lemoncelli and is open to all fifth through eighth-grade students. Students have the option of using their own personal instrument, a school instrument or a rental instrument. Beginning students are also eligible to join. All band students are required to attend one band lesson per week and attend two concerts per year. All students must complete all test requirements before performing in concerts.
