Our mission is to help preserve the culture of New Orleans and to enrich the lives of children through music, then to spread the generosity on a national level.
With an array of support from the community, our local jazz artists, James Demaria Productions and The Grillot Family, we raise money to give children options other than the streets.
With state and local budget cuts to arts and music programs, our goal is to help schools get the instruments that are so badly needed into the hands of our children. Studies show that when children have the opportunity to pursue and develop their talents, they will be more likely to avoid gun violence and gang activity. Then we would like to see the community get guns out, put the trumpets in, and take back our streets one horn at a time.
If you have an instrument that you would like to donate, please see our contact page. We also accept cash donations to pass on to local music programs and to help our organization share information about its mission.
Thank you for your support!
John and Lisa Grillot and Family
