You Had Me At Cello!
Help me give my students the gift of a quality new cello to begin the process of replacing our broken cellos and spreading the joy of making music for years to come.
"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything." Our students are creative, dedicated, and passionate young people with dreams of achieving incredible things through music.
In a community where music programs struggle to stay afloat, our kids are a shining example of solidarity through diversity and acceptance.
These inspiring children have overcome lack of funding, support and resources. By standing together as what they refer to as a "music family," they have brought awards and recognition to a program that was near the brink of extinction. Help us usher in a new era for our kids and provide them the opportunity to achieve something that could change their lives.
The cello is known for it's robust, dark tenor sound. As the tenor voice in a string orchestra, it plays various roles from strengthening bass lines to playing beautiful melodies. Any great string orchestra relies upon having quality cellos as a source for intonation, richness of sound and depth of quality.
Our young musicians work hard day and night to produce quality sounds, and I'd like to provide them with instruments that allow them to experience their potential.
With our school cellos beginning to fall apart, we seek replacement and improvement to push our sound forward and reach new heights.
Every student has a unique voice and sound. This sound is the essence of their identity and the footprint of their soul. Please consider helping me inspire our young people through music to find their sound. Thank you!
