Donation of chimes, tuba
An integral part of the SVSS mission is the inclusion of an educational
component and the promotion of music education outreach to kids and adults.
Accordingly, the SVSS has purchased two instruments for the Wood River
High School concert band.
They are orchestral chimes and a concert tuba.
Normally, high schools own these instruments. But until the recent SVSS
donation, the WRHS music department had to make do without them.
The purchase will also benefit the SVSS because the chimes will be used
during the upcoming concert season.
