Feb. 14, 2017

The combined Warde-Ludlowe string quartets provided the music to accompany the very special Valentine's Day luncheon for over 150 Fairfield residents at the Senior Center on Mona Terrace.  The luncheon was free to all town seniors, paid for by the PTA Council of Fairfield and coordinated by One Town, One PTA, an effort on the part of our high school PTAs to create more opportunities for Warde and Ludlowe to collaborate while showcasing the truly talented and generous students in our dynamic high school community. Culinary students from both schools served lunch, while the Warde-Ludlowe string ensemble performed a concert's worth of pieces, including some amazing solo performances.

The FLHS and FWHS Music Departments are proud to announce that 25 students have been invited to participate in the CMEA All-State Festival!  These students auditioned at the regional level, and after being accepted to the Western Regional Festival, were then invited to audition for All-State.  We are so proud of all of these students.

Congratulations to all these young musicians, and kudos to the fantastic Music staff at both high schools who have spent countless hours preparing their students for these opportunities!

Applications for Summer Music Camp Grants Now Available. Application Deadline April 9

The MPA's Summer Music Camp Scholarship provides financial support for music students who wish to pursue additional enrichment opportunities in music. Sharing the skills learned beyond the classroom with high school ensembles is an integral part of the grant program. Therefore, only students who commit to performing in their high school ensembles the next school year will be considered for the scholarship.

The amount of the grant will be determined by the total number of applicants and the current year's grant budget. As there are a limited number of grants available, typical awards are $200 each. The MPA Summer Grant Committee will review every application that meets the eligibility criteria, which are: 1) Current Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors who will be enrolled in either a FLHS or FWHS music class the following year, and 2) who will be attending a music camp or similar activity (we're sorry but the grant cannot be used for private lessons or theater camps).
