Promoting children's literacy annually since 2003, the Henry Arts Alliance, in conjunction with McDonough Library and Piedmont Henry Hospital, once again invited community members to decorate pumpkins representing children's books.
These pumpkins began their "parade" at Piedmont Henry Hospital and will end at the McDonough Public Library for the Fall Festival of Storytelling which is being held on Friday, October 18th.
The pumpkins arrived at Piedmont Henry in the North Lobby on Monday, Sept. 23 and will be on display at the hospital until October 4. You are invited to stop by the hospital to see the decorated pumpkins.
Henry for Music has joined forces with the Henry County School System to offer a unique opportunity to Stockbridge Elementary School After-School Enrichment Program (ASEP) students.
In mid-September, Henry For Music launched its newest initiative called "Joy Through Music", offering two new ASEP classes: Choral Class will give kids an opportunity to learn their voice as an instrument; while Recorder Class will give advanced kids an opportunity to learn and practice responsibility on a new instrument.
Already learning from resident school teacher Agustin "Mr. R" Rosado, who was a guest at Youth Orchestra United's 2019 Spring Concert, students are excited to start a new journey into enhancing their music skills with Henry For Music Teaching Artists as a step toward playing the instrument(s) of their dreams.
Come see what we're all about and get involved.
Every child should have access to music education.
How can you help?
When you donate your old or gently used instrument to Henry For Music, we refurbish it at no cost to you or the student recipient. Through this special service project you can also help by collecting from your friends and neighbors.
Alternatively, you can purchase a brand new instrument at either of our two drop-off locations. Let them know your purchase is being made as a "donation for Henry For Music" and we'll be able to pick up your in-kind donation.
On the go? Drop off your instrument at one of our drop-off locations (see below).
Please leave your contact information inside the case for us to send you a receipt.
"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."
