Fall 2013 classes began - our fourteenth year of bringing kids and music together in Taos. We once again offered six classes, with plans to expand the program for next year. There are some event highlights from the semester.
TYMS performed at the annual Town of Taos Christmas Tree Lighting to ring in the holidays. Scott Kesson braved the cold and led TYMS students along with the Girl and Boy Scouts in Christmas Caroling for the crowd. Our students did an outstanding job as part of a long-time Taos tradition.
Our Open House celebrated the hard work our students in all classes achieved over the course of the fall semester. The concert was outstanding, a true showcase of the teaching and learning happening at TYMS. The event was MC-ed by Board members Anna Mae Patterson and Melissa Cummings. Afterwards, friends and family gathered for baked goods - a bake sale raised funds for the program.
TYMS participated in a fundraising event at Wendy’s in December. We received 10% of all sales from the night, and were pleased to see so many of our TYMS families and friends head over to buy a burger and Frosty! Scott Kesson played Christmas songs to the delight of the diners. Many thanks to Board members Pam and Tom Ford and Angela Pacheco for organizing this event.
