The idea for Catherine's Orchestra for All, began in the summer of 2017, when Catherine personally witnessed hardships faced by her peers when it came to the ability to afford band program participation. She believed that any student, regardless of income or socioeconomic background, should be able to participate in music education programs. Her belief, combined with one small act, started a chain reaction. While she didn't get to see just how far that chain reaction has gone, we continue her work through Catherine's Orchestra for All.
