Blues Night- April 4, 2018 7pm.

*Brass players for Blues Night: Go here for your music.

You are invited to attend our second annual Fairmount Park Blues Night!  Concert scheduled for Wednesday April 4, at 7pm in the lunchroom. This will be a 30-40 minute concert and audience participation event of some soul searching, toe tapping, blues music!

Students from the intermediate band and 4.5 Choir will be performing along with the “Falcon Allstars Blues Band” (aka *FABB), featuring FP parents and teachers playing blues music on bass, drums, guitars and keyboard that evening.

Dress up as your favorite blues artist or character and join us for a fun evening!

Choir starts again the week of January 15 2018

Dear choir 2.3 and 4.5 families, just a reminder that choir starts the week of January 15th. There is no choir until that time as mentioned at the concert and hopefully in an email that you received. Also, you do not need to sign up for choir for this round of enrichments if you have already been in the choir. I look forward to seeing you after the Martin Luther King holiday. Thank you!
