New Operations Coordinator On Board
The Fenton Community Orchestra has hired an operations coordinator who started in November 2018. Jennifer Fleck, an orchestra co-founder and executive director, left the organization in September 2018. We were very fortunate to have Jennifer for the first eight seasons and wish her the best in her new endeavors. Our new operations coordinator, Tetyana Clarke will be assuming many of the day-to-day operations of the orchestra. We welcome Tetyana and are very glad to have her on board!
MCACA Grant Announced
We received our fifth grant from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). This grant, along with matching funds from our donors, helps support the orchestra’s operations and expand our programs to reach additional musicians through our Simply Strings (intermediate strings) and Wind Ensemble programs.
The Fenton Community Orchestra’s purpose is to provide a place for musicians of all ages to connect through music by providing an educational and entertaining music program both for its members and its audiences. FCO seeks to promote mutual growth and understanding through the experience of musical performance. Membership is open to musicians from age 12 and up, provided they have the desire to play and learn together.
