CELLO FURY AT VFMS

Cello Fury performed at Beaumont and all TESD elementary and middle schools last week with a final family show at Valley Forge Middle School on Friday, November 13. The highlight of the evening was when the group ended the show by inviting the children to sit on stage to sing a Taylor Swift medley (View video link). Thank you to Beaumont families who attended, and the Cultural Arts Committee, led by Lindsey Weber and Alicia Asselta, who plan all of Beaumont's Cultural Arts School Assemblies. Your generous donations to the Beaumont HSA goes towards our enriching cultural arts program which the students enjoy and look forward to. Cello Fury was brought to us by DELTA (Districts Educating and Learning Through the Arts), which was established in 1966, and is a non-profit consortium of HSA/PTO Cultural Arts representatives from Tredyffrin/Easttown, Radnor, Great Valley, Lower Merion, and Downingtown school districts. DELTA volunteers work together to make cultural arts programs available and affordable for member schools.
