Below is a message from Sarina, thanking The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation for the instruments that were donated to her school.

"Thank you for the new instruments. Your time and effort to personally deliver our brand new instruments was truly appreciated. I was so honored to be able to meet the representatives and then be able to personally show them the musicians they are are benefiting. Many of my classmates share instruments, more students can go home and practice which will increase the improvements of our ensemble and decrease the amount of time spent in class going over one section. Our ensemble was growing before we received the proper instruments but now we will be able to flourish since we have new ones. There have been times when we would have to stop in the middle or rehearsal when an instruments stops playing correctly or when it is grossly out of tune. We would have to wait until the teacher makes a temporary repair in order for us to continue rehearsing with a balanced sound and to have the student continue playing the instrument. Now with the grant, the teacher will be able to teach more and spend less time on repairing malfunctioning instruments. We will be able to progress faster and sound more advanced as an ensemble... Once again, thank you for taking the time and effort to fly to New York and deliver our precious instruments."
