  • Wind Ensemble Performs for ECMEA

    Each year, the Erie County Music Educators Association (ECMEA) holds a conference to engage in professional learning. To showcase the talent that exists in the region, the organization typically selects one or two student groups to perform for its members. I’m pleased to share that this past week, the ECMEA invited Mr. Vitello and the High School Wind Ensemble to perform four different pieces. The best part? For the fourth and final piece, Mr. Vitello invited the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra’s legendary Maestro JoAnn Falletta to conduct our students. As they played a movement from Alberto Ginastera’s ballet Estancia, the whole room of educators were blown away by the expertise of our Red Devil Musicians. For a taste of what ECMEA members heard, check out this video from the performance. Also, see the slideshow

    Are you buying your coffee every morning at Tim Horton’s or Starbucks?  Well, no need to fumble around for change anymore.  Simply use your gift card and you’re on your way! Do you shop at Target, Tops, or Walmart on a weekly basis?  Use a gift card at check-out instead of cash or a credit card. Do you give tips to delivery people?  We have $5 and $10 gift cards. Last-minute gift ideas all in one shop, and you don’t have to go anywhere!

    Remember, you’re not being asked to buy anything you don’t need.  Simply use your gift cards to do your normal monthly shopping!  $25 cash/check = $25 gift card.



    How does it work? Each time you purchase gift cards from our program, your child receives a profit. CHS Choirs buys gift cards at a discount.  You buy them at face value. 

    For example: CHS Choir buys a $100 Tops card for $95; you buy that card from your child (aka CHS Choir); your child just made $5, and you still have $100 to spend at Tops!!!

    Do this 52 weeks a year, and that contribution adds up to $260!  Remember, you’ve done nothing differently – just used a gift card instead of cash/credit / debit / check.
