- A BIG Thank You to all of you who chimed in on MAG’s appeal for a set of Chimes for our School Music program at GiveOrcas.org, the online Holiday Catalog of the Orcas Island Community Foundation. We raised 88% of our $4000 goal, a generous sum for the season, amid all the other worthy non-profit appeals. Listen for the music of chimes at a concert soon. — Learn More about the chimes appeal.
- Mark your calendar for our 21st Annual MAG Spring Concert on Sunday, March 4 2018 at 3PM at the Old School Gym. It is an Orcas tradition featuring over 100 community musicians, choral singers, and our student musicians — an island music feast that you must do!
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; their performances at competition are winning regional recognition; and a fledging choral group is testing its wings. To reach greater heights, we need your continuing support for the Orcas Island Public School music program.
