A Note of Gratitude:
Sean McDonald
Thank you to Sean McDonald for your generous support of Kids’ Orchestra!  

Sean is very passionate about music, and especially the viola—he used to play when he was younger! 🎻

“To give kids opportunities to gain all the extra benefits from musical training, especially improved academics and learning personal responsibility” is why Sean gives to Kids’ Orchestra. 

We appreciate you, Sean! Thank you again for sharing your love for music with our students! 💙
