Our four year old Djembe Orchestra program has taken off like a rocket ship. It now consists of multiple sessions, several days per week including one after-school session. The Orchestra performs in several showcases per year and in our annual Year End show in May. Unfortunately, the wear and tear on our 15 existing drums has exceeded our expectations. Four of our original six older drums are in desperate need of replacement to ensure that we always have a working drum for each child in each session.
