>> Arts Commission Honors Pouliot

Robert Pouliot

The City of Fairfax Commission on the Arts has awarded its prestigious John Mason Arts Achievement Award to CFBA's own Robert Pouliot. Pouliot is Music Director and Conductor of the City Fairfax Band, positions he has held since 1994. The award was established in 2001, to recognize individuals who have made a significant contribution to the development of the arts (dance, music, theatre, literature, visual arts or other art disciplines) within the City of Fairfax community.

"I am deeply honored. As the City of Fairfax Band Association's music director the past 20 years I have worked with fine volunteer musicians who give time and talent to perform quality music in our area. Achieving what we have over the years has truly been my pleasure," Pouliot said. "This award honors every member, past and present, and their dedication and skills have contributed greatly to what makes Fairfax exceptional. I am proud to be part of such a fine organization."
