The Noren Ellingson Memorial Fund
This fund was established in memory of Noren Ellingson after his
death in an industrial accident in August of 2011. His three children
and three nieces have played in the Youth Symphonies. Noren was
an active volunteer for FMAYS as well as a faithful attendee to
all of his families’ concerts.
The Fund is being used to purchase music for FMAYS. If you would
be interested in contributing to this ongoing project, please
send in your check to FMAYS, PO Box 2691, Fargo ND 58108 and indicate
Thank you for your consideration!
There have been some comments about a few people using iPads, smartphones
or iPhones during our performances to photograph or otherwise record
the concert. The other audience members around those users are being
distracted by this and not in a good way.
please refrain from using your equipment during the concert! Be
a thoughtful audience member and don’t take away from the
performance. Also, if you MUST leave and/or return to the concert,
do so during the applause. Thank you!
Do you have any musical instruments in your home that no one plays
or that you’ve been thinking of selling or giving away? How
about donating them to FMAYS? We are collecting used instruments
for students who don’t have the resources to purchase or rent
Even if the instrument is in need of some tender loving care (a.k.a.
repair), we could fix it up and put it in the hands of a student
eager to practice!
So contact Beth at the office (701-388-4536) and we’ll arrange
to pick it up. Thank you!
