Albert’s Story

On February 27, 2015 Spartan founder and long-time music educator Albert LaFlamme passed away. He was a teacher, mentor, and friend to many who passed through the Spartans.

We estimate that over 2,000 young adults have passed through the ranks of the Spartans over our 60-year history.

In order for the Spartans to honor his legacy, we are forming a Hall of Fame in his name. Members of the Hall of Fame will be individuals that have affected the Spartans in a positive and long term way.

Members of the Hall of Fame will be displayed on a special plaque to be kept in the corps offices.
