Apollo HS


Apollo High School's Choir has been recognized as one of the best music programs in the Valley after being named as the first winner of this year's Fulton Homes' Noon Salute program. Under the direction of Michael Frongillo, the Apollo High's Choir will receive a $1,000 check from the Tempe-based home builder.

The Glendale group is the premiere choral ensemble at Apollo High School. The choral group prides itself on communicating sincere messages through expressive musical performances and inspires young musicians and audiences alike. The group has had vast success in the last couple of years having recorded an album, received multiple superior ratings at choral festivals including the NAU Jazz/Madrigal Festival, been invited to sing at Carnegie Hall, and toured throughout Arizona and California. As a central figure in the Apollo High School community, Vocal Ensemble students are leaders in academics, musicianship, character, and integrity and strive to continue a tradition of choral and academic excellence. The check presentation took place on Friday September 28th at 11:00 am at Apollo High School.

For the eighth consecutive year, Fulton Homes has partnered with 94.5 KOOL FM for its popular Noon Salute program. Noon Salute recognizes local middle school and high school music programs that submit their rendition 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 weekly winners will be awarded a $1,000 check from Fulton Homes. Additionally, each band's performance will be available at https://kool.radio.com/contest/fulton-homes-noon-salute for others to listen to. The program was created to recognize and reward middle and 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 High School's Choir is one of the best 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, 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. To enter, schools can call 94.5 KOOL FM at (602) 452-1000 and schedule a time for them to come in and record their music program. To listen to the bands, play the National Anthem, tune in to 94.5 KOOL FM every day at noon.
