PROUDLY SUPPORTING STUDENTS IN THE PERFORMING ARTS FOR 30 YEARS!

Simsbury Friends For Music and Performing Arts

Simsbury Friends For Music and Performing Arts

 

WHO WE ARE:

Friends is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to enriching the lives of students by funding opportunities that go beyond the Board of Education's budget. We believe the arts play an important role in Simsbury schools, and most importantly in the growth, development and character of children.

 WHAT WE FUND:

Our talented teachers seek enrichment opportunities for students and request funding from Friends. This past year, our $30,000 budget enabled us to support:

  • The Town-wide Choral Festival featuring Guest Artist and clinician Elizabeth Nunez (funded entirely by Friends)
  • Transportation costs for students and ensembles to attend adjudications and CMEA Festivals
  • Music Excellence Awards in all 5 elementary schools, HJMS and SHS
  • The Town-wide Elementary Chorus (funded entirely by Friends)
  • Guest artists for Master Classes in elementary schools, HJMS and SHS
  • Lighting costs for the SHS Theatre Department
  • Recording fees for choral performances

These things would not exist without your generosity. Thank you, donors!

Join Us!

Friends For Music would love to hear your ideas as we grow and enhance our reach in  Simsbury Schools. Please join us for our monthly meetings, held in the SHS Library/Media Center at 7:00 p.m.
