The Ted Cole Clarinet Program is a new initiative to foster excellence in clarinet playing in the South Orange-Maplewood public schools.

It honors the life and achievements of Maplewood resident and former Achieve board president Ted Cole, a brilliant clarinetist and humanitarian who passed away in November 2017.  The program is still in the planning phase, but will be a collaboration between the school district’s music department, the Achieve Foundation, and Montclair State University’s Cali School of Music.

The Achieve Foundation is excited to introduce a new program to fund a clarinet program at CHS.
