Appeal for Instruments

The String Programs in Kanawha County Schools, a joint effort of the West Virginia Symphony and the School Board, are bringing tremendous opportunities to young people in the region.

Lessons on instruments are offered for free during school hours. Seventeen elementary schools participate. One of the newest, Piedmont Elementary, has had an incredibly enthusiastic response.

Twenty violinists, eight violists, six cellists and three basses signed up, but only three of these indicated they have the means to supply their own instruments.

We don't want to see them turned away.

Please help if you can.

Contact Andrea Di Gregorio at (304) 346-1908 or if you have an instrument or want more information.
