In Memorium

Arleen Melamed

With sadness we announce the passing of a GREAT champion of youth music education and one of the earliest supporters of YOBC. Arleen was a middle school and high school strings and orchestra teacher in Bucks County prior to her retirement in South Carolina. She performed as a cellist in community orchestras and chamber groups. Our condolences to her family and friends.
