WELCOME to the Friends of Music & the Arts in the Scarsdale Schools website!

And welcome to a new school year.  We’re excited to see what 2015-16 brings, and are already looking forward to the musical and theatrical performances and art shows ahead.

THANK YOU to all who supported FMA last year.  Your memberships, gifts and purchases at our December holiday boutique and spring Open Studio hosted by artist Miriam Schulman enabled us to:

  • Recognize the musical and artistic talents of 91 high school students with FMA certificates, awards and scholarships
  • Provide refreshments at high school concerts throughout the year;
  • Honor the arts faculty throughout the district with a luncheon at Wayside Cottage in May;
  • Make gifts in support of the arts to each school in the district, as requested by the arts faculty and approved by the principal of each school.  A summary of these gifts is below.

PLEASE won’t you renew your support for the coming year, so that we can continue to show our students and faculty that Scarsdale parents appreciate their achievements in and contributions to the arts?  It’s easy to join online through the links on this website, or you can click HERE to print out a membership form and mail it plus your check to FMA, P.O. Box 171H, Scarsdale, NY 10583.
