Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation donates instruments to Irving School in Derby
By Jean Falbo-Sosnovich
DERBY >> Irving School has won something that’s truly music to students’ ears.
Jennifer Lucas, the elementary school’s music/chorus/band teacher, received word that she was awarded $15,400 worth of brand new musical instruments from the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
Stub Hub, the corporate sponsor, donated 15 new saxophones, trumpets, flutes, trombones and clarinets for students who might not be able to afford an instrument on their own to strike up the band.
“This donation will help us continue to grow and develop our music program, and create access for all students who are interested in playing an instrument,” said Principal Jennifer Olson. “Mrs. Lucas has led the way with securing donations to help fund and expand the music room’s materials and resources.”
