Do you remember...

Do you remember how you felt when you first heard the music of your favorite artist. No matter if your a fan of the Beatles, Joan Baez, or Stevie Wonder, their is a shared experience that we all feel through music we listen to. These shared experiences are even more impactful when the music that we listen to becomes the music that we in return make ourselves. Music has the power to transform lives. What happens when a child's ability to listen to, create, and experience diverse forms of music is taken away? In the town of Wake Forest, there are no public school orchestra programs for students to participate in. The Wake Forest Community Youth Orchestra is the only after-school program in our town where youth can receive expert orchestral instruction and access to free instruments. No child is ever turned away for inability to pay or lack of an instrument. Give to Wake Forest Community Youth Orchestra Wake Forest Community Youth Orchestra is also the ONLY after-school program where the teachers look like the students that they serve. This is important as we serve Pre-K through 12th grade youth who are recognized as historically marginalized populations.
