The Share the Music program started in 2015 through the Bismarck Public Schools Foundation. This program allows students that are in financial need to benefit from instrumental music education.
The program allows donated band and orchestra instruments to be repaired and usable for students who would not otherwise be able to afford an instrument. The student is able to use the instrument for the duration of their time in the Bismarck Public School system as long as they remain in a band or orchestra.
Share the Music is coordinated by Melinda Halverson and Dana Van Heukloem. If you are interested in making a donation to the program (instrument or monatary) or you would like to apply to participate in this program please contact Melinda Halverson for band and Dana Van Heukloem for Orchestra.
Donations are accepted year around. Applications are due March 4th, 2016 for Band, May 2nd, 2016 for Orchestra.
