Weston Friends of Music (WFOM) held its first meeting of the 2007-08 school
year last week. It was well-attended; however, I did hear from many of you
who were not able to attend the meeting that you wanted to be kept updated on
our activities. The purpose of this email is to briefly summarize our
meeting discussions and to keep everyone informed on upcoming events.
Each of the music groups at the Middle School and High School has a parent
volunteer who acts as the liaison between WFOM and the directors. Depending
on which music groups your children participate in, you will receive music
listserv emails from one or more of the following parents when volunteer needs
arise or to inform you of upcoming activities for that particular music group.
The parent liaisons are as follows:
HS Band -- Joyce White (_joycewhite at comcast.net_
(mailto:joycewhite at comcast.net) )
HS Chorus -- Collette Chilton (_collette.chilton at williams.edu_
(mailto:collette.chilton at williams.edu) )
HS Orchestra -- Michelle Roman (_roman-stix at comcast.net_
(mailto:roman-stix at comcast.net) )
MS Band -- Linda DeLaney (_delaney_family at verizon.net_
(mailto:delaney_family at verizon.net) )
MS Chorus -- Sandy Coburn (_sandycoburn at yahoo.com_
(mailto:sandycoburn at yahoo.com) )
MS Orchestra -- Kim Engler (_Kg.engler at verizon.net_
(mailto:Kg.engler at verizon.net) )
Feel free to contact them directly if you have specific questions about a
particular music group.
The High School Masquerade Concert is scheduled for Wednesday, October 24th.
Due to a delay in the replacement of the high school gym floor and
bleachers, THERE HAS BEEN A LOCATION AND TIME CHANGE. Please note that the Chorus
concert will begin at 7 pm in the HS Auditorium. There will be intermission
from 7:30 - 8 pm. Then, the Band/Orchestra concert will begin at 8 pm. If
there are any further changes to this concert, a listserv announcement will be
On Wednesday, November 14th, at 7:30 pm, the Weston HS Orchestra will be
performing in Wayland with the Wayland HS Orchestra as part of a performance by
Barrage, an internationally-recognized, high energy string group that
performs an eclectic mix of music, song and dance. Barrage offers up a diverse
fusion of cultures, music styles and incredible performance vitality. Details
will be forthcoming -- don't miss this on November 14th. Thanks to WEEFC for
providing the funding for Weston's share of this performance.
The Second Annual Concert Clothing Sale is scheduled for Wednesday and
Thursday, November 7th and 8th. Collection of clothing will take place from
October 22nd through November 2nd. More details will be sent out over the next
few weeks. If you'd like to help or have any questions, email Judy Harris at
_jharris009 at comcast.net_ (mailto:jharris009 at comcast.net) .
There was also discussion on the concept of providing an opportunity for
parents to dust off their old band or orchestra instruments with the
anticipation of performing -- either with the students or in a community band/orchestra
group, similar to our Community Chorus. We'd like to hear if there is
interest on the part of parents for this type of opportunity. Please email me at
_cphedges at aol.com_ (mailto:cphedges at aol.com) with your interest and any
comments on this idea.
Other topics of discussion at our meeting included the sale of Winter
Concert DVDs, post-concert refreshments, and the possibility of introducing the
Tri-M Music Honor Society for our Weston student musicians.
Finally, the music listservs have been set up using the email addresses of
both parents given to the schools at the beginning of the year. If you would
like to add or delete emails from this music listserv, please refer to the
directions below on subscribing and unsubscribing.
Weston Friends of Music is off to a busy start with a full schedule of music
events coming up. If you have any questions, or want to share ideas for new
activities for our music department, please reply back to me. I look
forward to hearing from you.
