Excerpts from Letter Authored by the Duo Turgeon

 

 

Fullerton Friends of Music recently received a letter from our most recent concert performers, "Duo Turgeon". Excerpts from this letter follow regarding their experiences follow:

"The integrity of everything that defines Friends of Music was obvious from the moment we arrived, especially the focus on great music-making and the infectious passion demonstrated by the Friends of Music audience and staff."

"When we were received on site, it was clear from the outset that we were engaging with a group that prides itself in providing the highest quality experience at no cost to patrons."

"Upon arrival, we were greeted by the warmth and hospitality of volunteers committed to ensuring artist comfort while providing all conditions needed for success from all angles."

"(Fullerton) Friends of Music had procured two gorgeous Steinway grand pianos and prepared each to the highest standard imaginable, with outstanding voicing, regulation and tuning provided by a fine, amiable technician."

"Lighting was well handled. Acoustics were warm and complimentary. The hall`s classic wood floor and elegant mid-century embellishments served to create wonderful atmosphere."

Scholarship selection is decided by the music department at Fullerton Community College and the parameters set forth by FFM which include over all academic achievement and continuation as a music major or career in the field of music. A scholarship could not be awarded at the April concert due to the closure of the Wilshire Auditorium in March 2020 at which time FFM concluded the season.

Fullerton College selected Miss Avery Smith to receive our $500 cash award which was mailed to her in June 2020.

 

Miss Smith is a native of Whittier, CA. During her two years at FCC, she performed with the Symphonic Winds Band, Jazz band, Jazz Combo as well as with the theater department's musical productions. She will continue her studies at Concordia University Irvine in music performance and production.
