Congrats to Mr. Davern

-FPHS Band Director, Mr. Shawn Davern, is also a composer. He is having one of his pieces performed at the Virginia Music Educator's Conference by the Valley Wind Ensemble, a semi-professional ensemble from the Shenandoah Valley. The piece will be presented to the VMEA organization at our annual conference as a part of the session, "Cast a Wider Net: Programming Suggestions from a Diverse Range of Composers". The music for this session was curated by a group of experienced band directors from across Virginia. The chosen piece is called "An Elegant Sufficiency."  

Here is the premiere performance done in May by JMU, should you wish to listen.
