    Congratulations to the Class of 2020! Unfortunately it was a disappointing finish to your career at Tamaqua High School due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but I wanted to thank you for all of your contributions to the Jazz Chorale and Concert Choir over the years! We would not have been as successful as we have been without each and every one of you. So, thank you Class of 2020! We will miss you! Best wishes!

     My Funny Valentine - J. Buglio (solo piano)


    "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent."

    Calvin Coolidge
