Bank donates keyboard to youth band program

Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution recently purchased a new Yamaha electronic keyboard for the Biddeford Middle School music department. The new instrument will replace the school’s old electronic digital keyboard that was donated to the band 22 years ago.

“We are so grateful for the generosity of Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution”, said Amy Delorge, Biddeford Middle School’s director of bands. “This is going to be a wonderful addition to our music department.”

Delorge said students will use the new keyboard daily for class instruction and during jazz band. Students will also use the keyboard throughout the school year for multiple concert performances.

The new instrument will be a very important addition as Biddeford Middle School will host the York Junior High Music Festival in February 2017. The music festival will feature musicians from 17 different schools, and multiple keyboards will be needed for the choruses to perform.
