Alex Schachter was killed on February 14, 2018 in the devastating shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. He was a valued member of the Stoneman Douglas band and a trombone player.
All County Music and Conn-Selmer Company have partnered to create 50 trombones commemorating Alex Schachter. They have been given to 50 different schools in South Florida in Broward, Miami-Date, Palm Beach, St. Lucie, and Martin Counties. St. Mark’s is honored to have been selected as one of these 50 representative schools.
These 50 trombones were given, free of charge, to a trombone player from those schools who shows devotion and dedication to the band program. On Saturday, May 11th, at All County Music in Tamarac, our selected student, Michael Castellano was presented with his trombone. Congratulations Michael!
