On behalf of the Music Department of Baccalaureate School for Global Education, Ms. Nikkolos would like to thank the entire BSGE Family for this most successful school year! At we celebrate our BSGE 10th Year Anniversary, BSGE music department celebrates it’s 19th Benefit Concert! In the past 10 years, we have helped to raise over $12,000. for charity from donations made at our concerts. This money has supported relief in areas of devastation throughout the world, including Africa, Pakistan, Haiti, Japan as well as here at home in the USA.Together with the Helping Hands, this money has been distributed and greatly appreciated. We also want to thanks VH1 for their generous grant of musical instruments for the students to use freely throughout the year.

Personally, Ms. Nikkolos wants to recognize the support Mr. Sam Ulano for writing over 4,500 books

Instructional books filled not only with note, but literature to help the student when they are practicing at home. Also, for his help in securing the many world music instruments and drum pads and sticks for our classroom use.
