Plymouth Whitemarsh High School Virtual Orchestra

This year, the Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School Orchestra chose to support Laurel House with their spring fundraiser concert. Lydia Lynes, our Community Education Coordinator, has been working with the Orchestra students and Orchestra Director Elise Derewitz to provide information about our programs and raise awareness about domestic violence. They created a video of their concert and interspersed interviews with Lydia between performances, which you can watch here.

For those who live in the Colonial School District, the students's video will be aired again tonight on CITV at 7PM!

If you wish to support Laurel House and the students' project, click here for the GoFundMe! Or, you can click here to donate to us directly.

Thank you Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School for your support!
