We hope these little stories give you a glimpse of the outstanding musicians the public school music program is nurturing. A belated but heartfelt congratulations to these amazing Orcas Island student musicians—Theo Johnston (April), Natalie Zapeta Arevalon and Ginger Haug (May), and Finn Rubottom (June), who helped us close out the 2021-22 school music program! And once again, thank you to the generous sponsors of the ’Music Student of the Month’ series!
Stay tuned as we present the 2022-23 Music Student of the Month honorees very soon.
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 sponsored this monthly series throughout the 2021-22 school year that recognizes the efforts of student musicians and the value of school music!
