Saturday July 20, 2019 the City of Connellsville honored Atkins Music for 50 years of business in the city. Denise Friel took a position as a clerk just after graduating high school in 1969. She has spent her entire life devoted to promoting the positive benefits of music and to our community. After Mr. Atkins death in 1993, Denise Friel went on to purchase Atkins Music in 1994. Denise has been a major contributor of music in our community. In addition, she has been an outstanding citizen always willing to lend her support to the city of Connellsville and surrounding communities. We at Dan Alberts Piano wish to extend our honor and appreciation for her commitment and wish Atkins Music many more years of prosperity.
