Sometimes in school I hear the remnants
Of an orchestra concerto
But then I shake my head and think to myself,

We are willing to pay for football, basketball, baseball!
But is paying for some string instruments an order that tall?
There are so many students, hoping, praying
That our school can keep the music playing
But what if a string player can’t pursue their dream?
What if that string player
