Students at nine different schools in Surrey are playing new musical instruments, thanks to the efforts of Practice-A-Thon participants and donors. Thank You for the Music Society was able to donate a very exciting $7,500 to the Surrey School District from the proceeds of our 2018 Practice-A-Thon fundraiser.
The donation was used to purchase 12 xylophones, six glockenspiels and three digital pianos – a total of 21 new instruments.
The school district organized a celebration at Bonnacord Elementary on Jan. 23 to acknowledge the donation, and TYFTM Society board members were so pleased and honoured to hear the students perform a song on the new xylophones that were purchased with some of the Practice-A-Thon proceeds.
Once again, we would like to thank our amazing community of music teachers and students who participated in the Practice-A-Thon – this is all because of your efforts and support!
