Italian Garage Sale

I am not sure what a garage sale looks like in Italy but our garage sale is going to help us get to Italy!! Saturday Aug 8 is the Roosevelt Park Garage Sale Day and all the proceeds  from the garage sale at 1476 Cornell Road will go to the Mona Shores Orchestra International Trip Fund to Italy.  Students and families going on the trip are donating items and time to work the garage sale.

If you have a few times that you would like to donate to be sold in the garage sale we would be happy to accept them. Please drop off items on Friday August 7th between 4pm-9pm.

This won’t be your ordinary garage sale so please stop by and see the surprises lined up!

Grazie per sostenere il programma dell’orchestra!


Thats a wrap everyone!! Last day of students for the students and teachers get some rest starting Thursday.

With the end of the year and the new about to begin I feel the need to say. Great job to all the students for such a successful year; Thank you to all the parents of MSOPA for your support; and  Congratulations to our Senior Class. May your success continue on all your next adventures. Hope to to see you at future performances.
