Many people are familiar with the shows on our stage, but most are not as familiar with our Education Through the Arts programs, which use the arts to help educate over 30,000 North Bay school children each year.
One of these programs is Music For Schools, a 400+ instrument lending library that makes it possible for students who can not otherwise afford to do so the opportunity to participate in their school’s band or orchestra program. This program, which is the only public instrument lending library in the North Bay, is made possible through the generous support of our members, donors, and sponsors.
You can learn more about the impact of this innovative program by reading the stories of three students who have participated:
Want to get involved in Music for Schools? 1) Donate an unused instrument (call Chrystie Prokopakis at 707.800.7504 or e-mail her). We’ll refurbish it and put it to work transforming the life of a student. 2) Become a Luther Burbank Center for the Arts member. In addition to priority tickets and other benefits, you’ll help fund Music for Schools and our other Education Through the Arts programs.
