The Noren Ellingson Memorial Fund

This fund was established in memory of Noren Ellingson after his death in an industrial accident in August of 2011. His three children and three nieces have played in the Youth Symphonies. Noren was an active volunteer for FMAYS as well as a faithful attendee to all of his families’ concerts.

The Fund is being used to purchase music for FMAYS. If you would be interested in contributing to this ongoing project, please send in your check to FMAYS, PO Box 2691, Fargo ND 58108 and indicate this fund.

Thank you for your consideration!

Audience Etiquette:
There have been some comments about a few people using iPads, smartphones or iPhones during our performances to photograph or otherwise record the concert. The other audience members around those users are being distracted by this and not in a good way.

Please, please refrain from using your equipment during the concert! Be a thoughtful audience member and don’t take away from the performance. Also, if you MUST leave and/or return to the concert, do so during the applause. Thank you!

An Opportunity!

Do you have any musical instruments in your home that no one plays or that you’ve been thinking of selling or giving away? How about donating them to FMAYS? We are collecting used instruments for students who don’t have the resources to purchase or rent their own.

Even if the instrument is in need of some tender loving care (a.k.a. repair), we could fix it up and put it in the hands of a student eager to practice!

So contact Beth at the office (701-388-4536) and we’ll arrange to pick it up. Thank you!
