MPA ANNOUNCEMENTS & CALENDAR

The MPA of the Fairfield High Schools, Inc. supports music students at both Fairfield Warde and Fairfield Ludlowe High Schools in Fairfield, CT
Opportunities to Join the MPA Board for 2016-2017 school year!

Great things about being part of the MPA Board:

  • Board members are “in the know” early on for big music events – including field trips (Do you know what is coming up for next year?), concerts and other music happenings. 
  • The efforts of the MPA improve the experience for all of our talented music students. 
  • We hear firsthand about how fabulous the high school music program is!  Did you know that there are a record number of Western Region and All State participants this year?
  • Meet some really, really, really wonderful music parents!!!
  • There are numerous opportunities to work directly with our fabulous music students. 
  • The efforts of the MPA make the music program better and stronger. 
  • Board members are on a first name basis with the music directors at both schools. The music teachers attend our monthly MPA meetings and share what is going on in their ensembles.
  • It feels good to give back to the music program that gives so much to our children. 

 

The following MPA Board positions are open for next year:


*Uniform Coordination:  We have a wonderful returning co-chair for this role, but she needs some additional help.  The music teachers greatly appreciate this role!!  The busiest time is in the fall when tuxedos and gowns are distributed to incoming freshmen and again in the spring when seniors return their uniforms.  


*Pep Band Snack Coordinators:  The pep band members LOVE snacks at half time during home football games.  If you are able to help keep this tradition alive (and be hugely appreciated by band students and the band director!), please let me know!


Best wishes to you and your music students as the school year comes to an end!

Sincerely,

Cathy Carrano

MPA Volunteer Coordinator

2016 JAZZ DINNER DANCE 
The annual Jazz Dinner Dance, featuring the talents of both Jazz Bands from Ludlowe and Warde High Schools, was held on Friday, May 13th, 2016 at the Inn at Longshore.  The music was fantastic and the dancing was contagious.  The air was filled with merriment as parents, friends, and music lovers from around town came to listen to fabulous big band and jazz music as well as popular charts such as Uptown Funk, and Happy, along with some outstanding vocals.  The MPA’s silent auction fundraiser was well supported and the MPA is able to fund their many philanthropic programs as a result.  This is an event not to be missed, so keep your eye out for next year’s Jazz Dinner Dance.  We want to see you there!
