About this Campaign
Kirkbride Schools offers students in grades 4th through 8th the opportunity to play a string instrument of their choice as part of our student orchestra each week. For many students, this is the highlight of their week. One student said, "Mondays are my favorite days because that's when we have violin!" This is heart-warming reminder of how essential the Arts are for many of our students.
However, we have many instruments and cases are in need of repair. Funding this initiative would open the door for 16 additional students to join our orchestra. We would appreciate any help that we can get to continue to foster a love for music that these students can in turn share with the world around them.
Being part of our orchestra allows students to take ownership over their choice in music and prepares students to play for large audiences. Students in the orchestra perform a mixture of classical music and pop tunes, often playing songs that the students suggested themselves. Our orchestra has had many opportunities to bring their music outside of the classroom, performing for the school's 8th grade graduation every year, school-wide celebrations such as the Lunar New Year, and performing at fundraising events such as Kirkbride's "A Night Out with Kirkbride" silent auctions.
Please consider giving the gift of music to one of our wonderful students at Kirkbride School!
