By Debra Farden, Fulton City School District Music Facilitator
March is Music In Our Schools Month, and we invite everyone to celebrate with us! During the month of March more than 1500 students in the Fulton City School District Music Department will be presenting numerous performances to celebrate our musical Ã¢â‚¬Å“Tradition of ExcellenceÃ¢â‚¬Â, and we are hoping that you will be able to join us!
For the past several decades, Music In Our Schools Month has been celebrated nationally, through the Music Educators National Conference (MENC) as well as statewide, through the New York State School Music Association. Here in Fulton, we continue to participate in this celebration of music, and are looking forward to another exciting month in school music!
In addition to the various school concerts, the MIOSM celebrations include the annual production of the GRB Musical Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this year presenting Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Sound of MusicÃ¢â‚¬Â on March 4-6. The remainder of the month will offer performances from all of the schools in the District.
As you can see from the attached calendar, once again we have a very busy month ahead of us! On behalf of the students and staff of the Fulton City School District Music Department, I would like to extend a heart-felt invitation to you and your families to join us as often as you can for our musical celebrations! We also thank you for your continued support of the education of the entire child for our students in Fulton, helping to provide many incredible opportunities for them. Music is alive and well in the Fulton City Schools ~ something we can ALL be very proud of!
