What's New in the Land of the Titans

Support Instrumental Music at AEHS! 

End-of-Year Instrument Repair Drive! 

In celebration of Mr. Brendan Kelly's first year as the Director of Instrumental Music -- and what a fantastic year it has been -- PACE (the Performing Arts Coalition of Einstein) is raising money to repair, update and replace many of the instruments and pieces of equipment in AEHS's inventory, benefiting all instrumental music students.   As the program continues to grow under Mr. Kelly's skillful tutelage, we need your support to ensure that all students have equal access to AEHS's collection of musical equipment in good working order.
