    “This is truly music to my ears! El Sereno Middle School is a magical space for music, and I know that this will further amplify the talent development of our young scholars. Thank you to all for your leadership, commitment, and determination to make a difference in the lives of our students.” Frances Gipson, LAUSD Chief Academic Officer, Los Angeles CA

    San Fernando H.S. senior, Salvador, thrilled to play new sousaphone on the field.

    “Wow!!! This is exciting! Thank you so much Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation! We are so truly grateful for this generous donation. It will definitely help to build our band here at Wheatley High School and put more instruments in the hands of our scholars. We look forward to sharing the wonderful music our band will produce with our new instruments in the very near future.” Joseph E. Williams, Sr., Principal, Phillis Wheatley High School, Houston TX

    All smiles at Horace Mann Middle School in Colorado Springs CO.

    “The students all expressed that playing on the new instruments made them feel more confident in what they were doing. That boost of confidence came in handy because the 8th-grade band received straight 1st divisions at the district competition. All of the students were playing on donated instruments! We couldn’t have done it without the investment you made in our band program! Thanks again!” Jeremy Diggs, Director of Bands, Fonville Middle School, Houston TX
