One of the country’s most innovative music programs for at-risk students is having a positive impact on their academic performance, and it's happening right here in Charlotte. At Winterfield Elementary second through fifth graders are learning more than just to read musical notes. Their passion for music has given them self confidence and a positive attitude that spill over into all aspects of their lives.
The Wells Fargo New American Orchestra Challenge reaches out to support the Winterfield String Project as well as a host of other Charlotte Symphony initiatives. For every dollar donated either through Power2Give or directly to the Symphony, Wells Fargo will double it. Wells Fargo's $200,000 challenge grant can go a long way to showcase all the great work done by the Charlotte Symphony in the community, and help build a broader donor base for the future.
