String Instruments Donated To Lost River Elementary


It's a donation that could provide a big opportunity for plenty of students. Lost River Elementary School had 8 cellos, 9 violas, and 12 violins donated by the Symphony at WKU and the General Motors Foundation. The students spent some time learning their new instruments Thursday morning, and it's that curiosity that could one day lead them to play for the symphony themselves.

"When you see young kids have the opportunity to express themselves in art; whether it be visual art, or music, you can't beat that." said WKU Baker Director of Music, Dr. Bill Scott.

"We give money to a lot of different things. GM and its employees are very generous. When you can see the smile on the kids' faces and see where the money is going, to help the community. It makes it a little more special when you can see it first hand." added Corvette Plant Personnel Director, Joe Macrino.

The $5,000 worth of string instruments now belong to the Warren County School District so students can learn to play for years to come.
