  • We had so much fun at the 21st Anniversary Benefit Concert For School Music on March 4.  Thank you for joining us in filling the Old School Gym to capacity and singing your hearts out too!  In case you missed it, here’s the Thank You note from President Miriam Ziegler that appeared in Orcas Issues and Islands’ Sounder.  Lots of photos too.  Update: The amount raised to date is just over $9000 for our basic school music fund. Woohoo!

Many lovely opportunities to enjoy some music by our student musicians!

Our signature Spring annual fundraiser is the single largest concert on Orcas island, where over 100 island musicians come together in a show of support for school music that has become an island tradition.

Now, the number of students choosing band and strings is growing tremendously and their performances at competition are winning regional recognition.  To reach greater heights, we need your continuing support for the Orcas Island Public School music program.
