Friends of Marcellin Performing Arts

Friends of Marcellin Performing Arts (FOMPA) is a group run by committed volunteers from the Marcellin community. Its mission is to support and promote the college's music, visual, and performing arts programs.

FOMPA provides support to staff and students by running social and fundraising events throughout the year. These include suppers, raffles, decorations, ticket sales, and student breakfasts, among many others. 

All proceeds channel directly into the college programs. In the past, FOMPA has purchased promotional banners for the drama program, music stand banners, instrument covers, and a washing machine and dryer for the new theatre studies facility. 

Most importantly, FOMPA is dedicated to encouraging and fostering young talent.

2017 Annual Junior Music Concert

The annual Junior Music Concert took place on the evening of Monday, 13 November.  

Our wonderful  audience of enthusiastic and supportive families  survived the hot night and enjoyed the performances.

We were treated to some  skilled playing and the boys and their teachers are to be congratulated for the wonderful musicianship.

We heard from:

Honours Band Year 7
Honours Strings year 7
 Intermediate String Ensemble
Junior Big Band
Junior Concert Band
Woodwind Ensemble
Percussion Ensemble

It was also wonderful to hear the various teachers performing and interacting with the students, during some of the ensemble pieces.

And a big thank you to the FOMPA parent volunteers who assisted with the refreshments  on the night as well as selling Raffle tickets. And to the many generous parents who brought along some delicious food for everyone to share before and after the concert.
