For Those Who Missed the ArtSea Gala this Year, We Hope to See You in 2015

Last night’s Gala Concert at Winspear was absolutely wonderful!  I enjoyed all of the performances, and it was obvious that the audience did as well.  Thank you so much for organizing the evening.
…thank you very much for your continued support of Fine Arts programs in our district.  As you said last night, it is so important for our students to have opportunities to have quality experiences in the arts during their school lives.  Last night was also a wonderful example of the way the arts bring community together.  Not only did the audience include a range of ages, the concert band itself includes musicians of all ages which is absolutely wonderful.  The district sincerely appreciates your support….
I am looking forward to the many opportunities I hope we have in the future to collaborate to keep Fine Arts strong in our schools and community.

Thank you for the wonderful ArtSea Gala on Friday night! It was a great demonstration of the performance arts this community has to offer. Each of the Sidney Concert Band, Allegro Performing Arts and Parkland Jazz Band gave an enjoyable display of their respective talents. Truly a joy to be there! Now, let’s make sure the rest of the community wants to be there next year at the 2015 presentation of this not-to-miss event!
