Last month, community members from Del Norte - parents, teachers, students, and those who support the cause for expanding important art programs like music - gathered at the dubbed "Ta Da! Celebration" to celebrate the incredibly generous donation of the Nick & Lisa Rail Fund, in the form of 100 brand new instruments for Del Norte Unified Schools!
This video has condensed the entire event. It includes current DNHS music director Daniel Sedgwick and former DNHS music director Christie Lynn Rust thanking the generous benefactors and speaking about their own experiences, including why this donation is so monumental. Students also came to speak to ensure Nick & Lisa Rail were aware of their thanks, and likewise gave anecdotes of how much their experience would be improved by these new instruments.
