Fillmore News | December 12
From Fillmore Director Katherine Latterner —
We had a wonderful winter concert last evening and a very supportive and enthusiastic audience. What a nice way to start the winter season. We will be hosting some musicians from the National Symphony this week for our music classes and are planning a few sing-alongs with the younger students. We hope during the break that you will take advantage of the museums, art galleries and performances with your children.
