2014/2015 was an exciting year with many successful performances by all the groups. They started with tree lightings in neighboring communities and several holiday performances. The annual spaghetti feed, Jazzapalooza, was a big hit and had everyone on their feet. The marching band hit the streets for the first time in a decade and brought home the 1st place trophies for best high school band and best high school drum major for the Apple Blossom Parade. The Spring Concert featured the Guitar Ensemble, Jazz and Concert Bands, Jazz and Concert Choirs with Senior soloist performances as well as the Marching Band.
For 2015/2016 we're back with a new director and another exciting performance line-up.
Come to the Friends of Music meeting on the second Wednesday of the month 7:00 p.m. in the Band Room. We're planning all kinds of fun events and we need your help!
Next meeting Wednesday, May 11,2016.
What would it look like if there was no Friends of Music to enrich the tiny budget at El Molino's music program? There would be no new sheet music, no assistant music teachers, no accompanist, no awards night, no field trips, no scholarships, competitions or festivals and the students would perform in jeans and tennis shoes. We need parent involvement to keep the program afloat. So if you value your child's music education, please email Anne Paneo, our Volunteer Coordinator to sign up to help with one of fundraising activities or events (there are large and small jobs throughout the year) or donate money to Friends of Music (Friends of Music is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and your donation is tax-deductible.
If you have great photos of El Molino music events, please email them to Dave Kraybill. Thanks!
