Dear Family and Friends,

We are the parents of Alex Stewart who has an exciting opportunity to attend the Heritage Music Festival in Vancouver, BC May 22-25, 2014 with his high school orchestra.  This festival is a wonderful opportunity for students to perform at a national music festival, listen to other groups and receive constructive comments from top national adjudicators in a group setting.

A little about Alex:

Alex started playing the violin 7 years ago while attending a school for the gifted. He developed a great appreciation and love for music. He has competed in several local festivals, was asked to play in the Festival of the Arts 2012 in Spokane and last year  was selected to join the Lewis and Clark Chamber Orchestra. Alex is currently is in all AP (advanced placement classes) and in his third year of Japanese and hopes to one day double major in music and marine biology and minor in Japanese in college.

Alex's school has had several small fundraisers but most of them require you purchase items you may not want, just to raise a few dollars per student. We wanted to find a creative way to help him out this year so he doesn't miss out because of a lack of fundraising. We thought, why not reach out using social media to contact friends and family from near and far.  We have set a low goal to raise $700 which will cover the cost of the trip, learning/entertainment while in Vancouver and continued private lessons but would love to see the goal exceed to go towards his future music experience.  Alex is currently being privately taught by a member of the Spokane Symphony and would like to increase the frequency of his sessions to prepare for the festival and other competitions of the same nature.

Please help us make his dream a reality. No donation is too small. 

Thank you for taking time to hear our story and for your donation. We encourage you to share our story and Alex's journey to those who may want to join in our fundraising efforts.


Matt and Jolene Stewart
