The Belmont Youth Band has been invited for the fourth straight year to attend and perform at the “Jus” Blues Music Foundation annual awards show. This is a great honor and unique experience for the students. The year the event will be held in Atlanta, Ga in June 21, 22 and 23. The students will be performing to an audience with attendees from all over the world. They will also have the chance to perform with the professional musician, take a workshop and tour the MLK Historic District.
However, the band needs assistance with the expenses of the trip, including transportation, food and lodging. “We are a non-profit 501©(3) organization and we are dependent on donations from our supporters.” Said Vivian Lamont, founder.
The Belmont Youth Band was organized to keep children out of trouble by giving them something positive to do. Music education is a great avenue for these children and a way to gain access to academic scholarship through music. The program provides each child an opportunity to grow socially and academically.
Please help the band reach their goals to play in Atlanta. Donations can be sent to: Belmont Youth Band 2091 Tujaques Place Pensacola, Fla. 32505. Or call for more information 850-458-6744
