Student Letter to the Editor in support of MHS Performing Arts and FoPA

Many thanks to MHS Senior Julia Taliesin for her amazing, heart-felt letter to the editor in the Marblehead Reporter this week. We need donations from MHS parents and the wider community to support our incredible, creative students because the Performing Arts have a lasting, far-reaching impact on our students, our families, and our town.

MHS takes part in their first trip to UMass Band Day

Your FoPA donations at work! On October 12th the MHS Band joined more than 3,000 band students from across New England at Gillette Stadium for what band member Alex Kerai described in a great piece in Marblehead Patch as a day where "the excitement never let up."
"The bands watched the first quarter of the game (during which a football came over the net behind the field goal post and hit someone in the band section) and then got in position during the second quarter. Once halftime began, all of the marching band students filed onto the sidelines of the field. They were each in assigned groups (A, B, C, and D) from the morning rehearsal and remained in those groups as they marched on. The UMass band played two songs and then welcomed the 73 high schools onto the field. What followed was unforgettable performance."

FoPA is thrilled to have helped to fund this opportunity. Winship plans to make this an annual event for the MHS Band and has set a swift pace for the band department, rolling out new opportunities and musical adventures for our students. Go band go!
