Friends of Music

The Schalmont Friends of Music organization is made up of families and friends of students who are enrolled in the music program within Schalmont schools. Our primary goal is to help provide opportunities for children beyond those normally offered within the school curriculum that will enhance children's musical experiences.

Activities

Past activities include a Musical Chairs/Karaoke Night where everyone, both young and old, had fun! We held our Holiday Cookie Tray Sale, which proved to be very successful. Our Jazz Night was well attended, and we raised money for the HS band program.

Much of our fundraising goes towards various musical in-house programs as well as NYSSMA medals and helping students attend summer camps, festivals and clinics. We continue to support the Lunch with Santa Program because our top musicians begin their work at the elementary level.

Membership

You can be a part of the magic of the arts for all children! Please volunteer your assistance with any of the above fundraising programs along with a list of additional activities that are listed on the form.

For a membership form, e-mail the president of the organization, Barbara Marotta

Meetings

The Friends of Music meet every other month from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Schalmont Middle School Band Room. Meeting dates are listed in the district calendar. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend. We welcome your participation and support.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail the president of the organization, Barbara Marotta.
