VH1 Save the Music Foundation donates instruments to Newark Public Schools

Thursday, September 14, 2017

The halls of Newark Public Schools will be filled with the sound of music this year.

In a district-wide effort to rebuild and sustain music education, NPS school officials, teachers, arts advocates and community members gathered this week to show their commitment to arts education with the receipt of brand new musical instruments and the implementation of professional music development programs.

The VH1 Save The Music Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring music education programs, visited the district in the midst of National Arts in Education Week with more than 200 instruments to distribute to NPS students.

Nearly 30 violins, violas and cellos were unveiled at a press conference at Camden Street School on Tuesday, one of seven schools that will be receiving the instruments.
