Stephen F. Austin State University students, from left, Jacob Rivas of The Colony, Gregory Garcia of San Antonio and Kenny Waldrop of Abilene assisted with collecting donations for storm victims. Members of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, a national music fraternity dedicated to advancing music and inspiring musicians in America, collected the donations.
The Stephen F. Austin State University School of Music recently sponsored a hurricane relief project to benefit students at C.E. King High School.
“The band directors, who are SFA alums, requested help, and we jumped right in,” said Fred Allen, SFA director of bands. “It was a way for us to help a specific high school that we knew needed help.”
The two alums, Michael Murdock and Ronnie Ross, said flooding at the school had damaged equipment and requested color guard equipment, percussion equipment and reeds used with woodwind instruments.
The SFA School of Music recently mailed items to benefit the band at C.E. King High School. Pictured are, from left, Sarah Williford, sophomore from The Colony; Jessica Yancey, sophomore from Athens; and Lizzi Pineiro, senior from Katy.
“We posted the list, and many of our students and faculty members responded with items that we could send them right away,” Allen said.
