The seventh annual “Poverty Bay Blues & Brews Festival” was a sunny success this year with gross receipts of $65,000. Produced by the Rotary Club of Des Moines/Normandy Park, the event is expected to produce $15,000 for the Music4Life™ program supporting Highline Public Schools.

Music4Life™ is on the lookout for a Baby Grand piano for Superintendent Gary Cohn of Everett Public Schools. “We’ll put it to good use,” Dr. Cohn says. Please let us know if you know someone willing to donate a Baby Grand by calling 206-409-3275.

This is one of four Tang (Chinese) drums donated to Music4Life™ by the coffee giant Starbucks. We’re looking for a school that has a special appreciation for Chinese music and can use four original Chinese-made Tang drums.
