Thank You All!
As summer sonata fades away, Friends of Music would like to take a minute and thank all the volunteers, parents, and maintenance personnel for their tireless efforts.
It is said that "Many Hands Make Light Work"... indeed this is true!
Our Maintenance Staff
Our building Maintenance staff have been working all summer to get our buildings ready for our students this fall. During the school year they set up tables for our meetings, our concerts, and re-arrange their work as to not disturb rehearsals, concerts, and practices.
Thank you for your excellence!
Band Festival Was a Blast!
Our District Band Festival at Proctors was a great success! Concert attendees were treated to a number of fabulous musical pieces. Our Symphonic Band played the world premier of Festival Fanfare, composed for them by our own alum Jay Mobley.
The Potsdam Brass Quintet worked with our music students durning the week and joined them on stage for several numbers. It really was a very enriching experience for the students.
Many thanks to our guest artists for all they did for our students. A big thank you to all of our parent volunteers who helped rehearsal run smoothly
and kept our students moving on and off stage so efficiently. (and quietly!). Special thanks to those who helped with the reception for our guests after the concert, and to the string and vocal faculty who were such a huge help throughout. Special events such as our music festivals would not be possible without so many people who are willing to go above and beyond!
Once again, Friends of Music was pleased to be able to underwrite the cost of hosting the festival at Proctors.
