Last fall, the Port Orford/Langlois School District was invited to apply for a grant from the VH1 Save the Music Foundation. In this time of shrinking budgets and core-driven curriculum, the VH1 Save the Music Foundation generously provides grants to schools and districts that both demonstrate need for instruments and show resolve to maintain music programs.
In May, Superintendent Chris Nichols announced the grant was approved, and this summer a package of new Yamaha band instruments worth $30,000 was delivered to the students of Driftwood School. Needless to say, the students are excited beyond words, and are already taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity. The school has instituted a beginning band (for which EVERY 4th-5th grade student has signed up), and instruments are being used by middle-schoolers as well, laying the groundwork for re-establishing the once-proud musical tradition of Port Orford’s schools.
