Four Bromfield students put Harvard Pro Musica ahead

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

I am writing to share some information with your readers about the important contributions that four Bromfield School students — Andrew “AJ” Jorgensen, Naomi Malam, Kyle Quarles and Sarah Steranka — made during the 2007-08 school year to their local community chorus, Harvard Pro Musica (www.harvardpromusica.org).

As noted in our mission statement, “Harvard Pro Musica was established in 1969 to promote the common good and general welfare of the people of Harvard and local communities by providing periodic choral concerts of fine quality for the public; and to provide, for interested people of sufficient musical ability, an organized group with which to sing.”

Kyle and Sarah certainly more than qualify as possessors of “sufficient musical ability,” and we were very fortunate to have them share their remarkable singing talents with us — Kyle in the bass section and Sarah in the soprano section. AJ and Naomi were also invaluable members of the chorus — AJ as the designer/layout editor of our two concert programs and Naomi as the researcher and implementor of the publicity campaigns for both concerts. The value of all four students’ contributions cannot be overstated. We certainly would not have had as successful a season without them and I encourage any of your readers who meet these students over the coming weeks and months to thank them, on behalf of the town, for giving back to their community in this way.

I hope other Bromfield students will follow the lead of AJ, Naomi, Kyle and Sarah and will decide to share their time and talent with Harvard Pro Musica the same goes for residents of any age! The chorus will mark its 40th anniversary in town this fall and we hope as many people as possible will help us celebrate the tremendous creativity and talent so clearly evident in Harvard’s history and its residents, qualities that have made (and that continue to make) this town such a unique, vibrant place to call home.

Sincerely,

ANGELA GAFFNEY
