Boynton Methodist Church in the Third Ward is working toward establishing an after school music academy for their children. The pastor, Linda Davis, wants to enrich the lives of the children who live in this very low income area. Many of the parents work long hours and can't be at home when school is out. The music academy would provide security and enrichment for the kids. Needed are: recorders, chimes, flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets, trombones, violins, violas, cellos, guitars and percussion. The goal is to open in September with support and instruction from experienced teachers and some support from students at U of H and TSU. CHECK YOUR CLOSETS AND STORAGE BINS...You may find treasure you've forgotten you'd put there!
Drop off your donated instrument in the Green Bin by Entrance 7 at Greenbay and Chapelwood will deliver the instrument to Boyton Methodist Church.
YOU can be part of this much needed creative program. (If you want to volunteer as a teacher or helper...that would be SPLENDID!) Please contact Barbara.
