Donate to Orchestra (Viola Needed)

My students need another viola to encourage more participation in the orchestra and to help the viola section to to be heard!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

There is only one violist because we only have one viola, and so it make it hard for that one person to be heard through all the other instruments.

These are high school students.

They love to play the instruments. They are a small group. They work hard. They are nice, and charismatic. They attend a IB School in Twin Cities, Minnesota. They love to play music. Some volunteered at the Patrick's Cabaret to play a few songs.

My Project

They will be able to play more music, and get more sound out of the music. I am one of the students who play in the orchestra, and I am the one that play the viola. I think that another viola would be nice so that I won't be the only person who is playing the viola part in music, and I would have someone who can help me.

This is important because we need more instruments, and we already got another cello, so if we get one more viola it would kinda sorta make the orchestra whole.

I also think that if we get more instruments we could try to get more people to join, and only have the little amount of people that we have.
