"The Monsignor Farrell Band and Color Guard hope that the videos of this virtual summer concert gives a little cheer and escape from the monotony of quarantine life. The students have worked incredibly hard in order to use their God-given talents to entertain you. Many thanks to Mr. Tobacco, Mr. Musanti, and the entire administration for giving these students the opportunity to shine and for their continued support to the arts and their continued dedication to the cultivation of student creativity."- Mr. Andrew Monteleone '89, Director of Bands
