100 New Violins!
We made ade it! El Sistema Colorado raised $14,300 in our Violins for Kids April campaign, enough to provide 100 new violins. The goal of 100 violins will ensure every student has their own violin for our upcoming year end concerts and expanded summer and fall programming. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
A special thanks to Jane and Donald Scheuer for their generous contribution. They saw that El Sistema Colorado had raised $7,880 through the regular campaign and stepped up to donate the balance of the funds to bring us to our 100 violin goal.
Katherine and Alex Martinez, Sandy Elliott, and Nancy and Tony Accetta have also generously funded new instruments for the El Sistema Colorado program. They are pictured here helping to hand out new violins in a special ceremony last fall.
