THE PORTERVILLE RECORDER
On Thursday, Sept. 11, a day of remembrance, Harmony Magnet Academy had a special guest. Jason Fitz, a member of The Band Perry who was in Fresno to perform at the Save Mart Center with Blake Shelton that night, came to visit the campus. Fitz provided a two-hour workshop for HMA students. The workshop included performance and life tips which go beyond the music industry. He also played quartets for over an hour with HMA students and Dr. Mike Allard, the PUSD and HMA orchestra and symphony director. It was Dr. Allard’s influence that brought Fitz to the South Valley and PUSD. The program concluded with Fitz posing for photos and signing autographs for students and staff.
