2017 News, WFMC and NCR

National Music Week 2017 is celebrated May 7-14.

The WFMC congratulates Siddharth Nadkarni on being a National Music Week Essay Winner in the NFMC from the State of Wisconsin. Siddharth’s winning essay is printed in the current edition of Junior Keynotes Magazine.  Mr. Sam Ecoff is Siddharth’s teacher.

Siddharth will be reading his winning essay at the WFMC State Festival Competition awards ceremony on May 13th. Again, congratulations on a job well done from the WFMC.

The Barron Federated Music Club celebrates National Music Week and has been doing so since the 50’s. As a member of this Senior Club I challenge all clubs in our state to find ways to commemorate this year’s theme: Music…An Adventure for Life.  We are reminded that music needs to be a part of everyone’s life journey! Heidi, WFMC President

WFMC Letter of Call

The 2017 WFMC Convention has been postponed to the Fall of 2017.  It is with regret that I make this announcement but our officers, volunteers, and teachers need to be present at our WFMC State Festival Competition which is a week later. Thus, our state convention will be at a later date when a majority of members will be able to attend.  I hope to see you there!

Heidi O Hong, WFMC President
