I am unaware of another high school orchestra program in the public schools on the west side of Chicago. Students who participate in their K-8 school music programs can't stay in their neighborhood schools AND continue playing their stringed instrument simply because these performing arts programs are not available. I am starting a string orchestra program at my high school beginning with a violin class so that students can stay in a high achieving neighborhood school that offers orchestra. Students ask me if I can teach them to play a stringed instrument like the violin or to help them continue the string education they had as an elementary and middle school student. We need violins to make this happen. As we are undertaking this new programming, we currently have no instruments to fulfill this vision. I am hoping to obtain 6-8 violins to get us started. Thank you for considering a donation to our high school.
