Jack Page celebrates 90th Birthday with St. Augustine Musical Groups

 

Longtime resident, Jack Page, celebrated his 90th birthday with a surprise party given by the Memorial Presbyterian Church choir in conjunction with the St. Augustine Community Chorus. The Prosperity Bank Banquet Room was filled to capacity with members of St. Augustine’s musical community.

Since moving to St. Augustine in 1955, Jack has contributed his varied musical talents to many volunteer organizations. As a member of the Memorial Presbyterian Church choir for many years, Jack has also been the business manager of the St. Augustine Community Orchestra, a member of the St. Augustine Community Chorus (singing bass), and  a sometime performer for the First Coast Opera. For decades he has been a member of the Board of Directors of the EMMA Concert Association, directing EMMA’s Jack Page Projects, a program designed to provide music, musical instruments and music supplies to area schools. In addition to the Projects, Jack also arranges for various musical groups to give performances at public schools such as R.B. Hunt, St. Augustine High School, Webster, Crookshank, Southwoods, and Osceola Elementary Schools.

In recent years, in addition to his above musical activities, Jack Page has enjoyed being a member of The Glad Melody Gang, a quintet of recorder players who perform at special events and at local elementary schools.  Playing the recorder is Jack’s main interest but a few of their musical pieces require his playing the guitar and on occasion, the penny whistle. 

Also celebrating with Jack were his golfing buddies, “The Thieves”, and members of the EMMA Concert Association and friends. A potluck dinner, followed by a group sing-a-long, concluded the memorable evening.
