Riverboat Foundation Grant For MS Band Instruments Print

The Washington Middle School Band would like to thank the Washington Riverboat Foundation for their generous donation toward new instruments for the Middle School Band program. With the $10,000 and a $1000 parent donation we were able to purchase much needed school owned instruments that have not been replaced since the 1970s and 1980s. The instruments include a Baritone Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, French Horn, Baritone/Euphonium, Vibes, Xylophone, Electric piano (w/ stand, amp, pedal and accessories), and patch cord cables. These are instruments typically owned by schools and rented by students. A few of these instruments were non-existent at Washington Middle School before this purchase was made. In some cases, it provides an opportunity for students who could otherwise not afford to buy or rent their own instrument.
