Future projects will include funding special projects, clinicians, and commissioned works for the Council Rock Music Program.
The Council Rock Music Department is fortunate to have a program that provides musical instruments for students in financial need. This program is called the Don Ketterer Fund. Money in this fund is used to purchase instruments and repair donated instruments that have been donated to the school district. Students in all Council Rock schools use these instruments every year.
The Council Rock Music Staff and Faculty thank all that participated and attended the February 9, 2018 recital. The money raised is used for scholarships and the maintenance and purchase of instruments for students who would not otherwise afford them.
The Council Rock Music Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization. Please feel free to donate freely by either contacting us directly or clicking on the PayPal Donations Link. Your donation will go to help the music students of Council Rock School District.

The Music Teachers’ Scholarship is a cash award given to a senior from each Council Rock High School who will be studying music or music education in college. Students who wish to be considered for the award are interviewed by a committee of music teachers and then asked to perform a selection. The awards are presented at the awards night at each high school.
