CHEERS - To the virtuosos of the stage. Greater Johnstown School District Superintendent Rob DeLilli beat us to our cheer with his letter to the editor Thursday regarding the importance and pleasures of school music programs. Thousands of people have enjoyed the concerts - band and choral - presented on the stages of the Johnstown, Gloversville, Mayfield, Northville, Wells, Perth-Broadalbin, Galway, Amsterdam, Fonda-Fultonville, St. Johnsville, Canajoharie, Oppenheim-Ephratah, Wheelerville and Fort Plain school districts. The fostering and nurturing of students who have a love for the arts is an essential part of their education. In addition to performing locally, a great number of our local school jazz bands, marching bands, orchestra and choral groups received regional and national honors in competitions. Bravo to all involved.
