We got a new bass!

Over the past four years the Bellevue Orchestra's enrollment has continued to grow.   Each year the challenge to meet the demands of a developing program becomes more apparent.  Often there are not enough instruments for students to take home for practice time and the option of an instrument rental plan can sometimes be too cost prohibitive for families.  

In 2021, Mr. Kam experienced a shortage of basses.  Given the current need and a desire to support the program, the Orchestra Booster club stepped in to help.   In mid November 2021 the Orchestra Booster club voted to purchase a new bass for BHS Orchestra so that all bassists could play and practice their instruments.  The Orchestra Booster Club is thrilled to have purchased one bass outright at a cost of £3,000 and will continue to help fill the gaps where district funding falls short.  The needs of the program, however, are larger than the purchase of one bass.  More instruments and supplies are needed and you can help support that effort.  

Please consider making a contribution today to fill the additional needs. Your support is greatly appreciated by the students, Mr. Kam, and the Orchestra Boosters.
