First, A Big Thank You to all our student performers and all our Wootton arts teachers for helping to make the 2nd Annual Fall Cluster Festival a big success on Saturday, October 15! Patrons of the Arts was thrilled to organize the Wootton Stage at the event and see families from across the cluster enjoying the performances. Patrons of the Arts is here to keep the arts strong at Wootton but we need your help.
So far this school year, Patrons has approved grants to fund key donation — including an Apple MacBook Pro laptop to run QLab (sound and projection software) for the theater department. A big thank you to the generous donors whose dedicated theater funds went to this purchase (and yes, you can specify a department to support with your donation to Patrons of the arts)!
In addition, this school year, we have approved grants to refurbish the theater’s costume department, to provide staging equipment for the theater department, to provide a bus for a choral group to attend a special conference at Harvard University, for teaching artists for the visual arts department, and for a bus for an instrumental music group to represent our school at the Maryland Music Educators Association conference,
However, some big ticket items still need to be funded including 2 new French horns for instrumental music and a new soundboard for the auditorium/theater department use.
