A belated but heartfelt congratulations to these amazing Orcas Island middle school musicians—Stella Dillard, Vera Sasan and Lauro Quintero, who helped us close out a highly adapted last quarter of the 2020-21 school music program! And once again, thank you to the generous sponsors of the ’Music Student of the Month’ series! Now that the 2021-22 school year is well into Fall quarter and students are back playing music together (with safety precautions in place), look out for more school music news coming your way.
The Music Student of the Month series recognizes Orcas Island Public School musicians who work hard at their musical skills and whose love of music is an inspiration to their fellow student musicians. Thank you so much to the Orcas Island businesses who are sponsoring this monthly series throughout the 2020-21 school year that recognizes the efforts of student musicians and the value of school music!
