“There are many goals for this project, not just to have the film made but to show it to schools, to send copies to every member of Congress. However that can’t happen if the film isn’t funded. This film will happen, but the scope of the project relies on the budget they are given.”

“When I hear about schools cutting music programs, it saddens me. Band brought great memories, but it also taught me a LOT. The lessons and experiences I gained from band were monumental. I hate to see today’s kids getting robbed of all of that. If you were in band or value music or music education at all, please consider supporting this project. Music programs are at risk of getting cut. Let’s not let that happen.”
