Text for Tubas – A Noteworthy Cause

Founded 24 years ago, the mission of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra's Talent Development Program™ (TDP) is to identify and develop musically gifted and motivated, African American and Latinx classical music students for acceptance in top music programs in preparation for careers as professional musicians.

The TDP has a rolling enrollment of 25 Fellows per year, between fifth and twelfth grade. This year we have big senior class with six talented young musicians, who will attend music school or conservatory in the fall. While many will receive scholarship money to help offset the cost of their education, they still have many expenses to cover, including the purchase of a new high-quality instrument, and for our three tuba players, they’ll need two instruments each.

The good news is you can help!

This holiday season, we hope to raise $20,000 to help these students reach their financial goals to purchase their new instruments. Simply text TUBAS to 50155, or fill out the form below to make a real difference in the lives of these young musicians.

Happy Holidays!
