Mia Lang is our PCO intern, a senior at Penn State studying Music and Arts Entrepreneurship. When she isn't singing in one of Penn State's choirs or practicing her euphonium, she loves to work with students. During the weekend she is also an intern with the Cherub Choir at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in State College, and she spends her summers as a camp counselor at Interlochen Arts Camp. She is so excited to be a part of the Pennsylvania Chamber Orchestra for the 2018-2019 season!
