March is Music In Our Schools Month


FULTON, NY – Throughout the month of March more than 1,500 students in the Fulton City School District Music Department will be presenting numerous performances to celebrate our musical “Tradition of Excellence” and the public is invited to all of our performances, free of charge.

In addition to the various school concerts, the MIOSM celebrations include the annual production of the GRB Musical – this year presenting “Damn Yankees” on March 8-10.

On March 21-22 we are excited to welcome world-renowned composer Sean O’Loughlin and guest artist Dave Bamonte (trumpet soloist) to premier a brand new piece written specifically for our GRB High School Band!

O’Loughlin and Bamonte will be working with our students in workshops during their two days of  residence at GRB, and will also perform with the students in the concert on March 22.

On March 23-24 many string students will be participating in the Secondary All-County Orchestra Festival, which is being held in Fulton.

On April 13-14 several Fulton Chorus students will be participating in the Secondary All-County Chorus Music Festival, which will be held at the Phoenix High School.

This rounds out a very busy year which included many Fulton music students participating in the Elementary All-County Music Festival held last November in Sandy Creek and also in the Secondary
all-County Band Festival held in January in Oswego.
