Conn-Selmer adds Murrieta Valley High School to Growing School Program

Murrieta Valley Band Students to Receive New Instruments through Partnership

Elkhart, IN — Conn-Selmer’s Division of Education has added Murrieta Valley High School, located in Murrieta, California, to its growing list of institutions who are part of the Conn-Selmer School Program. The program gives the instrumental music department access to arts education resources including: instrument grants, Conn-Selmer Educational Clinicians and Artists, professional development, inventory assessment, and scholarships for directors to attend Conn-Selmer Institute - the preeminent annual event focused on advancing music education in schools.

More specifically, Conn-Selmer partnered with Murrieta Valley’s Director of Instrumental Music, Neil Anderson, to facilitate this large scale project. “Every member of the Conn-Selmer Family exudes professionalism,” said Mr. Anderson. “Conn-Selmer is committed to education and the idea that all students should have the opportunity to play on world class equipment.” As a result, the Murrieta Valley Crimson Cadets will obtain quality instruments for use in wind ensembles and on the marching field.

Conn-Selmer Managing Director of Educational Services Michael Kamphuis said, “We are excited Murrieta Valley High School has become a Conn-Selmer School and encourage the Crimson Cadets to take full advantage of the benefits available to help grow and develop their band program."
