On February 2, the Milton Academy Music Department hosted the Margaret (Peggy) Filoon Robertson ’56 Concert in the Apthorp Chapel. This year’s concert featured a repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary and showcased student-led instrumental groups, soloists, and a chorus of Milton Academy students, faculty, staff, and friends. It was an evening of beautiful and inspiring performances.

“We are here to celebrate the power of live music, and its power to bring us closer as a community.”  —Music Department Chair Adrian Anantawan

Established in 1996, the Margaret Filoon Robertson ’56 Fund supports travel for Milton’s student music groups. The Music Department named the corresponding home concert to honor Peggy’s commitment to the music program. The student performers shared their passions and gifts with our community, just as Peggy did. Jason Yu ’25, a talented saxophone player, performed his arrangement inspired by the music of Ennio Morricone from the movie Cinema Paradiso. Yu shared, “Cinema Paradiso is about a filmmaker reflecting on his childhood, and his journey to adulthood. The music and the movie spoke to me. A theme that carried through the movie was love, and I wish that this piece can bring you all some love and bring back some memories today.”
