The Band Received an Excellent rating for their performance and the Strings received a Superior rating. Congratulations to all these musicians for their hard work and great performances!
The students then traveled to Hope Children's home to paint a fence, clean and organize the paint shed and minister to some of the students on campus. Our students worked hard, had fun, and were able to help this ministry.
The next day was a trip to Orlando and Universal Studios! God blessed us with great weather and a fabulous trip.

First Baptist Academy hosted the d’Accordo Music Festival, our 2nd annual choir festival where middle & high school choirs from faith-based, private schools in Collier County came together in one accord to make music for His glory! Over 80 students came together from FBA, Saint Ann’s, Royal Palm Academy and St. John Neumann to sing several songs with special guest conductor, Todd Peterson, a strong Christian and Choral Director at Barron Collier High School. Uniting in one accord, these students took part in a “big choir” experience, improved their vocal and ensemble techniques, shared in fellowship with students from other faith-based schools and used their unified voices to let us all hear a glimpse of God’s glory through their beautiful sound. Join us in praying that in years to come this may become an opportunity for all musicians (strings, band, and choir) to come together from our area Christian schools to experience the joy of making music with a larger ensemble and sharing the talents that God has given to our students.
