APW Holds Exchange Concert With Sherburne-Earlville School

Students at Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Junior High School recently held an exchange concert with junior high students from the Sherburne-Earlville School District.

Members of the APW Junior High School Band and the Sherburne-Earlville Junior High Wind Ensemble joined forces for an exchange concert in front of APW Elementary School classes. The APW Band will travel to Sherburne-Earlville where they will perform an exchange concert at their school later this school year. The combined bands were directed by Jeffrey Manwaring, band director at Sherburne-Earlville and an alumnus of APW.

The concert was coordinated between APW’s band director Janet Fiacco and Sherburne-Earlville’s Middle School band director Jeffrey Manwaring.

Manwaring is a graduate of APW High School and was at one time employed by the APW District.

Performing for several classes from APW Elementary School, the bands each played two songs separately and then joined together as a large group to perform a combined concert.

Following the performance, the students spent time together to get to know one another and plans are under way for the APW students to travel later this year to Sherburne-Earlville for a similar joint exchange concert.
