Shepaug Friends of Music is proud to announce the production of a Holiday Music CD. Local musicians have graciously donated their time for this very special project. All proceeds from the sale of the CD will help benefit the programs which support music programs in our area. Please watch this section for more details coming soon.
Shepaug Friends of Music would like to offer our special thanks to all those who have responded to our appeal for contributions. Your generosity has helped to support our scholarship awards and gifts to the music programs of our local schools. This year we have helped to purchase another upright bass for the strings program. We have also donated the cost of accompaniment for school concerts and recitals during the year. - Thank You!
