If everyone who has ever played in a school band or orchestra, or anyone who sees the value in music education in schools gave $1-5, we would have more than enough money to start the revitialization process; repair instruments, pay additional travel expenses, pay entry fees for competitions and festivals... there's just a lot of fundraising for our students to try to accomplish - and with your support we will be successful!
