24 Third Graders Receive Violins in Harmony Stockton After-School Program, 10/7

24 third- through sixth-grade students at Marshall Elementary School in Stockton have spent the last few weeks learning how to hold, play, and care for their "violins" in the Harmony Stockton free after-school music program. During this time their "violins" have been able to withstand the occasional knock or drop to the floor because they are made from cereal boxes and a yard stick, and the bow looks a lot like a wooden dowel.

On Monday afternoon, October 7, at 3:30 p.m., these 24 students will be handed the real thing-a violin on which they'll perform throughout the rest of the school year. Since they've mastered the art of caring for the musical instrument, these violins will be in good-and very loving-hands.

Media is invited to capture the excitement at the distribution of violins to the students.

Location:

Marshall Elementary School, Room 105. 1141 Lever Blvd., Stockton 95206. (209) 933-7405.

Time:

3:30 p.m. Monday, October 7
