Falmouth Music News Falmouth Music Parents Association / February 2017

It's been a busy school year so far for our Falmouth music students. It’s hard to believe that 2016 is gone, and we are already in the month of February! Our students put on amazing displays of talent at the fall and winter concerts. From the Elementary School to the High School their dedication, hard work, and passion for music could be heard in every note sung and played.

The Falmouth Music Department is excited to be hosting the District II Jazz Festival!

The Festival will be held at Falmouth High School on Thursday, March 2nd from approximately 3:00 to 9:00 PM. Over 20 jazz bands, jazz combos, and vocal jazz groups from a dozen District II area schools will perform throughout the afternoon and evening for an audience of musicians, jazz adjudicators, family, and friends. Many volunteers are needed to host the event. A sign-up sheet is linked below. A host parent volunteer meeting will be held on February 16 immediately following the Falmouth Jazz Night Concert to go over the details. The Iron Twinkies Jazz Band and Grade 6 Jazz Band from Falmouth Middle School and the Falmouth High School Jazz Band along with the Falmouth High School Vocal Jazz Ensemble will all be performing at the District II Jazz Festival. It's sure to be a fun night! Sign up here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vNPn9xiJKx0A9ol53_IcFEFYYR3Ll9iYyyVdKReCeZg/edit?usp=sharing

Your help is greatly needed and much appreciated! We are hopeful to fill the volunteer spots asap to be sure people are in place to successfully host this event.

You can also help support the Falmouth Music Department by purchasing Falmouth Music Apparel! Please visit http://falmouthmusic.bga-estore.com/ to place your order. They have everything from t-shirts and hoodies to winter hats and gloves, cozy pajama bottoms, and even stadium seats!

A quick reminder that the concert swap shop has been moved and reorganized. You can now find it in the closet across from the chorus room at the Middle School. It has a variety of button down shirts, pants, skirts, and shoes of all sizes. Feel free to drop off what your student has outgrown and browse for anything they may need.
