EMMA Concert Association is happy to provide funding through our Jack Page Projects to Sebastian Middle School. This year’s donation aided music teacher, Mr. Charles “Chuck” Rogers, to purchase four guitars and two violas for the school’s orchestra and guitar program. “EMMA has been extremely generous,” said Rogers. “This is easily their fifth donation to our music program, and when I worked at Osceola Elementary School, they gave to our program there as well.”
When it comes to the school’s concert season, Mr. Rogers said there will be no concert this season, but they are hoping to re-evaluate in the spring. Instead, the school is hoping to have a recorded concert for parents and students to view, which will be available on the school’s website. EMMA is excited to post this recorded concert on our platforms, so stay tuned!
We are happy to provide help to the music departments throughout St. Johns County, if you’re a music teacher in need, please contact Tommy Bledsoe or Antonio Scott at EMMAinfo@bellsouth.net
EMMA Concert Association also provides scholarships for graduating seniors, donations for Flagler College music programs, and hosts fundraisers for music education.
