"[We are] So grateful to receive this lady's (Brittni Leigh) musical gift for our (Henry For Music) Youth Orchestra United Students that impacts their lives for a lifetime. Thank you Erin Lopez for your Beautiful storyline!"
-Jerry Hesselink, Founder - www.HenryForMusic.org
Henry for Music is celebrating your support! On Giving Tuesday, Facebook matched your donations. Our students have been motivated by music, and you are helping place it in their lives by also donating your instruments for our students.
El Sistema USA has featured two of Henry For Music’s Youth Orchestra United students, Lauren and Charlie Wiggins, in the successful national campaigns to raise money and awareness in support of students going to the El Sistema 2020 Symposium and Seminario. Congratulations, ladies!
Henry For Music has partnered with Henry County Public Library System to continue promoting childhood literacy by hosting our (2) decorated pumpkins, on display now at the Locust Grove Public Library.
Created by Lead Artist Adryan Joy Franklin (@ArtByAdryanJoy), she welcomed artistic help from Henry For Music's Youth Orchestra United students, staff and teachers to create the pumpkins as part of the Henry Arts Alliance's "Parade of Pumpkins" at Piedmont Henry Hospital in September.
Each year, since 2003, the Henry Arts Alliance partners with McDonough Public Library and Piedmont Henry Hospital promoting children's literacy with community members' decorated pumpkins representing children's books.
Pumpkin 1: The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt earned the Display Honors at OrthoAtlanta Stockbridge's Physical Therapy Department in October.
Pumpkin 2: The Legend of Messy M'Cheany by Kathie Lee Gifford stopped off in its parade march at the McDonough Public Library for the Fall Festival of Storytelling aka "Monster Mash" in October.
Henry For Music is finishing out its own home stretch of the "Parade of Pumpkins" so be on the look out:
• Cochran Public Library
• Stockbridge Elementary School
• Fairview Recreation Center
• Fairview Public Library
• Locust Grove Public Library
Come see what we're all about and get involved.
Wishing you a very Happy 2020 from Henry For Music!
"Henry For Music has allowed my son to blossom into a fine musician. On a limited income, I knew it was going to be a challenge to fulfill his desire."
"Ms. Bridget is a very talented teacher and works well to address the children's individual skill levels. Mrs. Laurie is excellent at tutoring those who just need a little more one on one."
"Through this program, my son has gotten to enjoy the beauty of music not only by hearing but by creating it through discipline and hard work. Skills I know he will come to cherish as he continues to grow."
