of Fulton Homes Noon Salute Program

Glendale school's vocal program wins $1,000, exposure on 94.5 KOOL FM

Apollo HS Choir

The Apollo High School Vocal Ensemble has been recognized as one of the best vocal groups in the Valley after Fulton Homes named the Glendale school's group as its latest winner of the Fulton Homes Noon Salute program. Under the direction of Michael Frongillo, the premiere choral group on the Apollo High School campus will receive a $1,000 check from the Tempe-based home builder, Fulton Homes.

The group's focus on musical excellence, expression, and community outreach creates pride on campus at Apollo. The vocal ensemble has also recorded an album, received 5 superior ratings at the NAU Jazz/Madrigal Festival in 3 years, and continues to create inspiring music for the Apollo community.

For the sixth consecutive year, Tempe-based homebuilder Fulton Homes has partnered with KOOL FM for its popular Noon Salute program. Noon Salute recognizes local middle school and high school music programs that submit their version of "The Star Spangled Banner." Each week a winner is chosen to have their performance played on KOOL FM at noon each day. At the end of each month, one of the monthly winning musical programs will be awarded a $1,000 check from Fulton Homes. The program was created to recognize and reward high school musicians and their hard work and dedication to their musical studies, as well as teachers and band directors who develop their musical talents.

"Apollo's High School's Vocal Ensemble is one of the best vocal groups in the Valley," said Fulton Homes CEO Doug Fulton. "Throughout the years we have had received many wonderful responses to Noon Salute from students, band directors, principals, parents and homebuyers. Every performance of the National Anthem by these students – whether it is an orchestra, string band or choral group – is unique."

Band directors, principals and others can enter their school's version of the "The Star Spangled Banner" for a chance to be featured and win the $1,000. Mail a CD to: KOOL FM, 840 North Central Ave., Phoenix, AZ, 85004. To listen to the bands play the National Anthem, tune in to 94.5 KOOL FM every day at noon.
