It's been a long week, but so many great things to report!  I was so proud of our members of the Howard County Middle School Gifted and Talented Symphonic Band who performed on Saturday under the direction of Dr. Mark McCoy.  The band sounded great, with many wonderful and standout moments by the young musicians, who included Alycia O., Nicholas B., Kyle F., and Gwynn M.  Further recognition should be given to the three young musicians who earned alternate spots with the ensemble: Sara M., Shane M., and Miles M.

We had six students earn spots in the Howard County Middle School Honors Band!  Congratulations go to Sara M., Shane M., Miles M., Matthew B., Colin W., and Caleb C.!  I can't wait to hear their performance.  If you would like to learn more about the Howard County GT Band program, please click over to the County Music Website.

Folly Quarter was cited in a blog advocating for music in our public schools.  Our program was referenced by the author Tommy Foster as an example of what great can be made by school students.  It was a real pleasure to be contacted by Mr. Foster, who asked many insightful questions about our school system and program before posting his blog.  It's worth a read:
