How do we use your donations?

Donations received last year subsidized artists’ fees and paid for student outreach, impacting over 1400 youngsters. In addition, we gifted funds to local music teachers so they could:

  • Purchase and refurbish band instruments
  • Purchase software upgrades; ‘Music and Movement’ instruments and props.
  • Purchase copyrighted sheet music for choral classes.
