School Percussion Ensemble Instruments
SERF’s grant will expand the percussion equipment currently available to student musicians. The grant funds the purchase of a marimba and an additional xylophone and will be used to create a future multigrade Percussion Ensemble. The instruments will allow the entire band to access and perform a more diverse repertoire.
“The marimba and xylophone have just arrived and the students are so excited! The addition of this new sound, and what it enables for all our band students, could not be a bigger hit!” – Kevin Donegan, Applicant
“Thanks to a grant funded by SERF, our son is excited to play in a new percussion ensemble at Curtis – he is even willingly attending practice at 7:15AM! We are thrilled that he has this wonderful opportunity to explore his creative interest and connect with his school community!” – Jessica Sales Cohen, Parent of a 6th grade percussion ensemble student
