FMA Needs Your Help

DO YOU LIKE VIEWING THE MUSIC CONCERTS ON FOXBORO CABLE???

Well…Foxboro Cable and FMA need your help to continue to record and broadcast these great events!  Without the help of camera volunteers, Foxboro Cable cannot provide this support.  No experience necessary — Foxboro Cable will train you on the spot!

The amount of coverage any organization gets is a function of how many camera volunteers come forward. It is a partnership.

Please email Neil Kaiser at guncka@Verizon.net to let him know of your interest. He will then add you to his mailing list. Neil sends monthly calendars with requested needs and assignments.  It is at that point that you accept an assignment, so your volunteering is flexible to suit your schedule.  He is most in need of elementary and middle school coverage, so please spread the word. THANK YOU!!

8th Grade Step-Up Nights

Step-Up Nights are a great way for our Ahern 8th graders to experience the music world of the High School. Many current high school musicians will affirm that their desire to continue their music education was determined by the positive experiences of the Step-Up Nights and the Marching Band Fall Cook-out. These events showcase the dedication, the musicianship, and the sense of community fostered by the high student music students.  Band, Chorus and Orchestra each hold their own nights as follows:

Band 8th Grade Step-Up Night Concert — Monday, December 19th at
FHS Auditorium at 6:30 pm

Choral 8th Grade Step-Up Night — Monday, January 9th at
FHS Choir Room 122 at 6:30 pm
