Thank you for visiting our website, and welcome to the new school year! The leadership committee of Friends of Music & the Arts in the Scarsdale Schools is grateful to everyone who supported us last year. Family memberships, t-shirt sales, and purchases at our spring Art Show fundraiser (hosted by talented local artist Miriam Schulman) helped us support arts education in the Scarsdale schools. In 2015-16 FMA was able to:
- Recognize the musical and artistic talents of more than 100 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 the Scarsdale Public Library in the spring;
- 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.
Let's keep up the good work! Please 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, then mail it plus your check to FMA, P.O. Box 171H, Scarsdale, NY 10583.
And, IF YOU’D LIKE TO GET INVOLVED in our activities, please contact FMA Co-President Jeannine Palermo at jeannine.palermo.22@gmail.

Wishing you all the best for a wonderful year ahead!
