What a week! Apopka Arts & Jazz, FFCC Winterguard Premier, start of the new semester…. WOW! This was a big week for us! VERY PROUD of both Winterguards for their awesome showing at Lyman HS! JV placed 6th in their classification and Varsity won FIRST PLACE in Scholastic A! Congratulations on your performance – we know how diligent you are in practicing and pushing yourself – it shows! Also a huge THANK YOU to Mrs. Fields and staff for your dedication to prepare them at the highest level!

THANK YOU to ALL of our volunteers on Saturday at the AAJF! We are grateful for your sacrifice to brave the cold rain and windy conditions to sell concessions! Thank you to everyone who had a hand in the planning, facilitation and implementation of this awesome day!

And lastly, a big shout out to both of our Jazz Ensembles for a great day of performances at the AAJF! It was a great start to Spring 2015 performance season!
