A letter to the Madawaska Community from music teacher, Ed Boynton

photoTo the Madawaska Community and Madawaska Music Department:

The Madawaska community should be very proud of the  FANTASTIC ALL AROOSTOOK MUSIC FESTIVAL that took place this past weekend, January 17 and 18.  The food was great, the rehearsal venues were superb, the organization excellent.  But of all the wonderful parts of this weekend event, it was the friendliness and helpfulness of the people of the Madawaska community that made this such a special event.

The long hours of work by the parents, students, and staff of Madawaska Schools paid off.   Music Director Josh Bosse has done outstanding work with the students of the Valley, and has given infinite hours of dedicated service to the students and community.

Madawaska has a great deal to be proud of.  And I think I speak for the musicians and teachers from all over the County:  GREAT FESTIVAL, GREAT WORK, GREAT COMMUNITY!!!  It was an awesome ALL AROOSTOOK BAND FESTIVAL.

Ed Boynton, Music Instructor
