Goal

To raise $4000 to cover costs for eight underpriviledged students to participate in clinics, trips, and competitions, in order to help raise their academic, social, and emotional awareness through the power of music. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will participate in a "Concert Band Camp" weekend, and will be taught by guest clinicians and conductors. Meals, a t-shirt, and a trip to the Florida Orchestra will be included. Students will rehearse several times a week throughout the school year, attend all county and state adjudications, as well as travel to Orlando in the Spring for a nationwide competition and overnight trip. 

 

Benefits to my students

Grants will cover costs of staff, clinicians, music, instrument repair, meals, competition entry, and travel for eight students who could not otherwise afford this opportunity.  

 

Describe the Students

These students come from underpriviledged homes, and often times lack the emotional support needed to successfully navigate the rigors of high school. Some are struggling students, and others excel academically. However, all struggle financially and would benefit tremendously from the benevolence of others.  

 

Budget Narrative

The cost per student to participate in the 2014 Concert Band Season is approximately $500.00. with $4000.00 raised, we can improve not only the lives of eight recipients, but lessen the financial burden for every family that IS able to meet the obligation.
