The double bass is large and impractical for students to carry via public transport. To ensure our double bass musicians can practice and perform at school, we need to have instruments available for use in the music department.
We currently have four students playing the double bass and only one quality functional instrument.
This year Friends of Music have in conjunction with the Music Department have set the goal of acquiring 4 new double basses at a cost of $2,000 to $2,500 per instrument, at a total cost of between $8,000 to $10,000.
Any funds that the school community can assist us with will be gratefully appreciated especially by the boys who are using the current instruments and future MHS musicians.
Donate to the Arts and Cultural Fund today to support this worthy cause.
