Meyer Music – Band of Angels

In 2010, Band of Angels was formed to assist students wishing to learn to play music. The organization has donated more than 2,200 musical instruments and funded 315 full scholarships to camps in 15 states. Meyer Music and FOX 4 TV hosted the ninth annual Band of Angels Heart Strings Gala. The event was held on February 1st at The Abbott. The Marching Cobras performed for the guests with new drums that were provided by Band of Angels. Kat Rodriguez, the saxophonist for Beyoncé, was the guest artist. During her time in Our Town, Kat also visited seven schools, inspiring more than 500 students. Now, that’s music to our ears!
