Local Orthodontist Donates Funds to Support Windsor High School Music Program

Bernstein Orthodontics hosted music contest to celebrate National Music in the Schools Month

Online PR News – 06-June-2014 – Santa Rosa, CA – This past March, Bernstein Orthodontics launched a music contest to celebrate National Music in the Schools Month. The contest aimed to shed light on the importance of school music programs and provide needed funds to a deserving school.

Students were encouraged to submit a short video of a performance by their school band, choir or glee club for a chance to win $500 and a pizza party for their class. The orthodontic practice posted the video entries on their Facebook page for fans to vote. The winner was announced at the beginning of May.

“The kids seemed to really enjoy this contest. We love when we can give back to the community and have our patients really get involved. We are excited to give this scholarship to the Windsor High School Symphonic band!” says Dr. Rael Bernstein.

The director of the Windsor High School band, Erica Batten, plans to use the money to help fund a trip to Disneyland during the next school year where the band will compete in the Heritage Festival with high schools all over the country.

“The Music Bash is a wonderful thing! It got the kids motivated and excited to show off their talents. Since we were able to submit multiple videos from our school, it gave an opportunity for a little healthy competition between our different performing groups. Everyone supported each other because we wanted Windsor High School to win the grand prize, but the pizza party was an extra motivation for the different ensembles to “beat” each other. It was very fun making the videos and watching how many “likes” on Facebook each one earned. We are so thankful to Bernstein Orthodontics for supporting music education in Sonoma County,” says Erica Batten.
