The Melrose High School Marching Band is a group of exceptional young people in Memphis TN. In the summer of 2016, several band instruments went missing. In spite of this, these students continue to practice hard, and even had the opportunity to travel and perform in New Orleans in the spring of 2017. 

Please join us in raising money to replace the missing instruments, and give this music program and these students a chance to thrive and excel. We will be holding a benefit concert on Friday March 31st, 6pm at Melrose High School. (the event can be found on facebook https://www.facebook.com/events/402565873450243/ 
), and contribute online to help us meet our goal of $2,500. 

This fundraiser is also being held in rememberence of Joseph Stephen Ponder, 1967-1916, who loved music, and would have loved to see Melrose students have the same kind of opportunities that he had to play, perform, and share music with the world. 

The Melrose Highs School Marching Band thanks you for your generosity and contributions!

I am so overwhelmed by the generosity of all of the amazing performers, volunteers, atendees and donors who made the Music for Melrose event a success. Between the concert and the online donations, we have raised over $2,000 to purchase new instruments for the Melrose HS Band!!!!

We are now less than $500 away from our goal! Help us get there by sharing with anyone who you think may want to give. Thank you so much to all of you who have already donated!

Music has been my life since high school, when I learned that the training I got there would help prepare me for the long road ahead. I'm so very indebted to my band director Jim Terry for the opportunities we all received in those formative years.

Music is so powerful - it can heal, bring spirits up, get you thru hard times, speak to a crowd or just your friend - there is so much positive that can come from music. Thank you for this opportunity to contribute and keep the music playing at Melrose HS. I hope you reach your goal soon! Love you lots, Mom
