Matapalo Music School

CU Winds recently learned that since their visit to Matapalo, and their donation of fifty instruments in January, the enrolment in the Matapalo music school has doubled from 40 students to 80!

All of the instruments that were donated by the Cornell Wind Ensemble are happily being played and cared for. The Matapalo band will be performing at Canada Day celebrations in San Jose on July 1, 2006. Most Matapalo students have never visited San Jose, and auditions are being held to see who gets to make the trip. CU Winds is proud to be part of the growing involvement of Matapalo students in music-making.
