Third and fourth grade Toms River Regional Schools students, along with their parents, once again participated in the music department’s Instrument Test Drive on Monday, May 20 at High School East. The concept of "test driving" an instrument is part of the community outreach component of the "Play It Again, Toms River!" program, a grant-funded initiative to refurbish musical instruments.
The Garden State Philharmonic and Zzack’s Applaud Our Kids Foundation hosted tables while High School South's brass choir performed during the evening. Children “test drove” a variety of instruments-- which were provided by Beachwood Music, Garden State Music, and Music and Arts-- met teachers, and spoke with high school students involved with the program. Students also had the opportunity to ask questions about being a member of the band and orchestra.
Thank you to all who made this event possible!
