An Associated Press report posted Wednesday (3/3) on New Orleans Fox 8 News website states, “Loyola University music professor Jean Montes, a native of Haiti, will soon travel to that nation with a group of students and volunteers. The purpose of their trip this month is to deliver musical instruments to the earthquake-devastated Holy Trinity School of Music. The group, with the support of the Greater New Orleans Youth Orchestra, is organizing a massive effort to collect musical instruments from individuals who no longer use them. After collecting unwanted instruments—and funds to purchase others—the group will travel to Haiti for three days to deliver the supplies to students of the school.”
