Do you support…
Where will your money go?
- Music and the arts?
Your contribution encourages the growth, expansion and appreciation of quality music programs
in the school and in the community by introducing new possibilities and opportunities to schools
and their students. Jason Currin's Ultra Terrific Udu Xylorimba Tom Tom Gong-a-Thon is a
multicultural event focused on enhancing musical programs through the introduction of new
musical styles, ideas, instruments and performance methods and techniques.
- Young people?
You have a chance to make an impact in a young person's life by providing musical
opportunities not offered in regular band programs. This festival is a positive and educational
activity that brings together the whole family, and rewards hard-working students with a chance
to share their achievements with an audience.
You have the opportunity to promote yourself or your business as an advocate of the arts and
education in your community. Fayette County schools have a long tradition of musical
excellence in the schools, and the area is home to many gifted percussionists. Without proper
performance venues these percussionists will go unnoticed. This music festival is a forum
designed to showcase the community's local performers while simultaneously creating a learning
environment rich in talent and diversity to help propel students to the next level.
If these issues are important to you please show your patronage by supporting Jason Currin's
Ultra Terrific Udu Xylorimba Tom Tom Gong-a-Thon. You and your company's staff will be
recognized by your clients and the public as a leader, committed to music and arts education and
its role in the community.
