South Fork Music Association and the Children of San Luis Valley
From its inception a long term goal of the SFMA was a Children’s Program. As Music is crucial to a well-rounded education; Ideas such as lessons sponsored by the SFMA and cooperating with School districts to provide instruments or helping in grant processes were continually discussed. As our Association continued to make progress in the greater South Fork area, it became clear that we needed to concentrate on a program that would be conducted by the SFMA. As a board, the decision was made to provide stringed instrument lessons free of charge and to set our program apart, students who participated in all 8 weeks and the recital would be awarded their instrument. Over 40 children have participated and performed at their respective recitals.
