Country legend Vince Gill and singer-songwriter Alex Hall were on hand at Waverly Central High School earlier this week to surprise the student assembly with $100,000 worth of instruments to replace and upgrade what the school’s bands lost in the recent flood.
“I’m a small town-minded guy. I know what it feels like. This is a place where everybody knows
KHS America, which was connected with band director Joseph Bullington as well as Gill and Hall via the CMA Foundation, donated over 40 instruments from their brands: Jupiter wind instruments, Majestic concert percussion, three XO Brass professional trombones, and a Mapex drum set. Percussion tables and a bell stand from Hercules were also included.
“KHS was founded on the principles of changing lives through music and the knowledge that music and music education are essential to society,” notes Jerry Goldenson, president of KHS America. “Supporting this incredible music program and being a part of this relief effort is something very special that will surely have a positive impact on the lives of young people and the community of Waverly as a whole. It’s an honor to be able to provide even a small bit of assistance.”
