Ernie Fields Jr. Donation We just received a very large donation from my friend
Ernie Fields Jr.
Ernie is from Oklahoma and so am I... his father was a big band leader and famous in the mid west and west coast (Back in the days of the big bands of course) We here at the foundation really want to thank Ernie for being so giving and helping many students get a chance to play a musical instrument. Once again thank you Ernie!
Clarinet for Karla
We presented a Paris Master Model ABS B-Flat clarinet to Karla a 12 year old clarinet student. She did not have her own clarinet and the one she was using did not play.
Email from Karla:
I like band because I feel at home and I love the music and how special it feels….
Email after she received the clarinet:
It’s so beautiful! It sounds so amazing thank you so much Mr. Allen! I cannot wait to become a better player!
Alto Saxophone for Avi We just presented a new Rheuben Allen "Young Artist Series" alto saxophone to a young student named Avi. He is playing and enjoying the saxophone.
Christmas Saxophone Presentation was a very big success. We have received a couple of thank you notes and a few emails form the young man Tre receiving the saxophone. He is really enjoying playing the saxophone.
April Alto Presentation we just presented a young alto player Joe a new saxophone. His mother is in the Army and stationed overseas. He has emailed us several times telling us how much he likes the alto. We presented him a Rheuben Allen Series 5 Lacquered Alto.
