FMHS bandOur work in education continues to strengthen with many exciting projects underway. Almost all of them are serious, research and curriculum based, but some also combine innovative uses of the property that both the Edison and Ford families would really love.

One of the projects happened on September 21, 2016, and I thought I would give you a head’s up and tell you about a happening for 160 high school students who will travel to London, England to perform in the Annual New Year’s Day Parade on January 1, 2017.

FMHS band 3The students gathered for some pre-travel work with the BBC right here on the Edison and Ford Estates. In the photos, you can see the performance on the lawn that was recorded by the BBC for use closer to the event in London. We want to thank Mark Dahlberg, Fort Myers High School Music Educator, for thinking of us as the location for this historic practice session. I only hope the Edison and Ford families heard this because it was spectacular. We look forward to showcasing more of our talented students at Edison Ford.
