Meet & Greet for Orchestra, Band, Jazz Families

Friends of Garfield Music logoBe aware of the new start time for Music Night on Friday, Sept. 22! Families with instrumental music students will have a chance to meet each other and GHS teachers, including new interim Orchestra Director Mike Sundt, who until recently led the Washington Middle School Band & Jazz programs.

The event will run 6-8 pm in the Commons, and feature light refreshments. [UPDATED from original 5-7 pm time frame.]

Attendees will also hear about the year’s expected concerts and other activities. The event will be something of a debut for Friends of Garfield Music, the new name for Friends of Garfield Orchestra (FOGO). This  change actually is a return to the original non-profit incorporation name of 30+ years ago!  Friends of Garfield Music will support all orchestras and bands at the school.

[9/18 UPDATE] Garfield Jazz Foundation board members will also be present to provide information about the new before-school jazz classes for Jazz Ensembles 2 and 3.
