The Gilbert school district‘s music program has outgrown the current riser steps and acoustic sound shells used by our students for their music and choir performances. Therefore, the time has come to invest in new choir stage equipment that is safer for our students (guardrails on risers), easier and safer for staff to set up, move and dismantle, and large enough to accommodate the growing number of singers from kindergarten through 12th grade.
The cost of both the risers and shells is substantial and will total approximately $60,000. This equipment is costly but necessary, and will serve the district’s thriving music program needs for many more years ahead.
The Fine Arts Boosters have committed $15,000 towards the cost of the equipment, and are working with the schools, and school affiliated organizations, to secure additional funding.
The remaining balance needed to fund the project is $35,000…which is still a considerable amount. As a result, FAB is reaching to our outstandingly responsive and generous community members in hopes that many will step up and support this “fundRISER” campaign, so that our singers and audience can enjoy an improved performance experience as early as this coming fall.
Thank you for supporting the fine arts programs at Gilbert!
