Last night, Garfield Orchestra celebrated the silver screen with its annual Pops Concert. Over 170 student musicians played music from Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, Frozen and more. What a fantastic evening!
The concert also kicked off our Annual Drive. Continuing our legacy of having an award winning program depends on your continued support. A significant part of our mission is to subsidize orchestra activities so that all students can fully participate.
Your donation funds instrumental coaching, music scores/licensing, festival costs, scholarships, and the repair and replacement of school instruments. In addition, this summer we are hoping to renovate our instrument storage room. Next year, we are looking forward to having concerts and programs for our feeder school students – future Garfield musicians!
Please ensure the continued excellence of our program by donating today. If your company matches employee gifts, you can double your donation!
For those who missed the fabulous concert, here’s a student-produced video explaining why Garfield Orchestra is so important to the students it serves: https://youtu.be/Ug89Mopz8nQ
An evening of decadent and delicious music from the late French Baroque, including Couperin’s La Paix du Parnasse (“Peace on Parnassus”), Leclair’s second Récréation de Musique, and selections from Rameau’s works for harpsichord, solo and accompanied. This concert is a co-production with the Portland Baroque Orchestra. More information and tickets can be found here.
