New Parent Group Supports Villa Maria Musicians

Parents of musicians have formed the St. Cecilians, an organization whose mission is to support the musicians and directors at Villa Maria Academy.

The group’s first effort was providing dinner, ice cream and a movie before the spring concert. The musicians feasted on Chinese food and ice cream while watching The Greatest Showmen. The parents also gave flowers and balloons to the seniors at their final concert.

Several St. Cecilians chaperoned the Madrigals and String Ensemble at competitions in Hershey, PA. Next on their agenda is the Music Department’s Senior Night.

Officers of the St. Cecilans are Kathryn Slaats (president), Millie Slifer (vice-president), Mary Beth Pancerella (treasurer), and, Cindy Chirillo (secretary).
