Ferndale orchestra teacher Ben Moy was named Teacher of the Year for District 4 by the Michigan School Band & Orchestra Association (MSBOA). Fittingly, Moy, who also swings a mean lightsaber, learned he had received the award on May 4th (May the 4th Be With You), also known as international Star Wars Day.
Congratulations, Ben. We're so glad you have been recognized outside the district for the amazing work we have grown to appreciate over the years.
We are proud to announce that Ferndale Schools has 8 students who have been selected to perform as part of the Oakland University Honors Orchestra weekend Nov. 11-13, 2016. The students will work with Alan McNair and perform two movements from the Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings as well as the Overture to "Candide" with wind and percussion players from the Oakland Symphony. It is a very exciting opportunity for these students. The students who are participating are:
