Members of the One More Time Band of San Juan Island and of the Friday Harbor Friends of Music were recognized at the May 29, 2019 Friday Harbor High School Band Community Theater concert for their combined donation of $3,000 in scholarships to six graduating seniors. The recipients were: Julian Brown, Ava Hoffman, Joseph Kaden, Joely Loucks, Tori Polda and Lucy Urbach.


Band Director Cart Nelsen – just finishing his 4th year at FHHS and his 36th as a music teacher and school band director – thanked both the OMTB and the FHFM for their contributions as he introduced the recipients to the audience. Under his leadership and guidance the high school band now has 64 musician members, and the middle school band 109.

The OMTB is an all-volunteer group of musicians playing big-band swing music and popular dance tunes that donates its earnings to help support the music programs in San Juan Island schools. The members come from all walks of life; the band rehearses most Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM in the high school band room; prospective new members are encouraged to bring their instruments and sit in. The band plays a variety of big-band


tunes; reading music is a must. For further information, venues, and play dates the band can be contacted at: jwc_3654@rockisland.com.
