It was a wonderful experience working with the Clare 8th Grade band and their director Melissa Sapienza. I was a guest conductor for the Spring Concert and was delighted to find the 8th grade band a mature, respectful, and considerate group of young musicians and young adults. They were and are a real credit to your community and school. Mrs. Sapienza is a fine director and is a real ambassador of your school. I know your community is proud of your school and Band for the long tradition it has been and in Mrs. Sapienza will continue to be!
