Your generous donation not only helped 8 students participate in our performance tour, but it impacted the entire wind ensemble. The Oliver Band program is truly a team effort where everyone is equally important. Those 8 students represent only part of the ensemble that traveled and performed. The students practice together everyday and when anyone is missing at a performance there is a definite negative impact....Thank you so much to Notes for Education for its generous donation to help the students of the Oliver Band program. Please know that all of the students are extremely hard working and thankful for their opportunities.
First of all, I would like to give you a BIG thank you for the donation you provided. I wouldn’t be able to afford these trips without you. Being in this band has benefited me in so many ways. I’ve learned that maintaining myself is key to great success, not just in band, but in real life too.
The opportunities given to our band program are absolutely amazing. The feeling of being on stage, the bonds that grows between each individual, the family that grows stronger daily, each of these things shape us. It’s absolutely magical, the feeling of accomplishment when on that stage in front of hundreds of people. My gratitude is almost indescribable and I’m not sure how I’d feel without these opportunities.
I am thankful for your donation to the band because my whole life I have wanted to become a singer so I didn’t think I needed to go to college. After being part of the Oliver Band I have considered going to college to get a degree in music. Your donation to the band has given me opportunities that I would not have had.
I would like to say thank you. Thank you for donating money towards my school’s band program. It really means a lot to me when I can sit down and improve my skills as a musician while learning about music.
When I’m on stage performing I have a feeling of pure joy and happiness. When I’m standing on stage in front of a clapping audience after a performance I feel peace. I realize that this state of mind, this simple thing that is music, is my heaven on earth.
My favorite moment out of all of the amazing and successful trips we’ve had was Atlanta, right after the concert, the moment when the lights were only on us, I felt it was just us. The feeling of finishing made me enjoy myself, I was so proud of us and we truly are the best! Thank you!
With the support that you have given us, I’ve been able to go many places, explore, and have a fun part to school. When I perform, I feel like I am forming bonds with people, not with words, but what we play. With the funding I get to share music and form a connection with the listener.
Thank you so much for the donation money that you gave us. As a result we got to travel to different places, experience the feeling of being on stage, and learned more about music together as a band. This experience has helped me learn that the hard work we have been through was worth it.
