This year, I asked the orchestra students if they would be interested in adopting a family (through Tosa Cares) as an orchestra program wide service project. Two of our students, Megan Stoffel and Alex Lee, took on leadership roles. They addressed the audience at our winter concert, and we were able to raise over $300 with which to buy requested items! Also, various audience members and orchestra families volunteered to bring in certain items. I am proud that our orchestra community was able to do this, and I hope that this becomes a winter concert tradition.
