Your Executive Director:
What a fall this has been! The Pops Concert of FMAYS set a record
for attendance, so if you were there, you were among over 700 people
listening to the students perform & look their best! We are
thankful that Madeline Capistran & Elizabeth Weisser brought
their talent back to their hometown to show all the students what
can happen when a talented young person carries their studies of
music on and becomes a sensation!
The Junior Concert Strings has grown to 71 young musicians and what
a fine sound they make! Lots of parents have been enjoying watching
rehearsals on Sundays and all are welcome to attend.
Thank you to all the parents who have provided snacks for the break
time of both orchestras during their regular rehearsals. The kids
really appreciate them! If you would like to volunteer in this way,
email me and tell me what Sunday you would be able to provide treats!
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!
