The StrandTastics will be under the direction of MR. NATHANIEL COPELAND. Mr. Copeland has outstanding credentials and is excited to spearhead the program. Mr. Copeland has spent the last few years in school districts throughout the North Hills. Most recently he served as a long-term substitute choir director at Seneca Valley's Ryan Gloyer Middle School. While at SV, he also served as the musical director for Ryan Gloyer Middle School's production of Disney's Aladdin Jr. and the Intermediate High School's production of CLUE.


Previously, he worked as a substitute teacher in the North Allegheny and Pine-Richland School Districts, and also student taught at Pine-Richland Middle School and High School in their choral department. Mr. Copeland has had the opportunity to work with and get to know students in each of these districts' music programs, and the vast amount of talent and dedication that they contain. Other musical involvement includes formerly being a section leader for the Junior Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, performances on stage with Stage 62, and singing with Voces Solis.
