To help keep live music in our schools and instruments in our children’s hands, we are constantly looking for new or gently used instruments to donate to deserving students and/or schools. Financial contributions are critical for maintaining and repairing our instruments. Donations received during this quarter include: 1) A Whitney acoustic Baby Grand Piano with bench and a Yamaha Digital piano with bench from Anne Derby and the Friendship House Senior Living Center in Sandy Spring, Maryland; and 2) an upright bass donated by Brett Murray, and his nonprofit foundation, Concert for Causes, Inc. Brett made the donation after hearing that the FAME Jazz Band Program’s new bass player, Genesis Dorsey needed one of her own for performances and practice at home.
Many thanks to these donors! You have made a substantial contribution to our students and organization. Also, thank you to our piano consult and tuner, Mr. William Grogan; and Crofton Piano Movers for their continued support.
