Letter: Thanks for supporting student music programs

Pentastic Jazz Festival gives donation to Penticton schools

On behalf of the music students at Princess Margaret Secondary and Penticton Secondary Schools, I would like to thank the Pentastic Jazz Festival for the generous donation to help support our programs For the past number of years this organization has given back to the two secondary school music programs in Penticton. Donations were collected at two non-ticketed events and all proceeds were forwarded to assist students with music related travel. These funds go directly into helping young musicians travel to other festivals, or performances to help encourage their musical growth. Thanks once again for the continued support of young musicians in our community.
