Orchestra Students Get New Instruments

Students at one Henderson school received the gift of music Wednesday with the donation of musical instruments.

Leadership Henderson Class of 2013 presented instruments to students in the Brown Junior High School's orchestra. The money for the instruments came through the group's Keep the Music Alive initiative.

"The goal was $20,000 and they actually exceeded their goal of $20,000. So, not only were they able to purchase new instruments for the orchestra program. They were able to have additional funding for other programs at Brown Junior High," Henderson City Councilwoman Gerri Schroder said.

Students said the new instruments were desperately needed because the ones they had been using were old and often fell apart. There were also not enough to go around, and students would have to share.
