    “The award of new instruments has helped so many students participate in band this year! Last year, music teachers had to turn away many students whose families could not afford to rent or purchase an instrument. This year, band enrollment is now at over 65% of all fourth and fifth graders in Rowland Avenue School! Students are very grateful for this gift. Your contribution has truly changed their lives and made a distinct impact on their musical experience. YOU have made a difference which will last for generations!” Sharon Cathey, Visual & Performing Arts Coordinator, Covina Valley Unified School District, Covina, CA
