No strings attached

After getting a recommendation from strings teacher Judy Moran, a pair of Beaufort Middle School students applied for free instruments through Andy’s Foundation. After submitting their essays and crossing their fingers, seventh-grader Ryan Winkler and eighth-grader Zoe Klauck were surprised to learn they would be getting their own instruments – free of charge.  The goal of Andy’s Foundation is to put music into the hands of children, and the nonprofit is named after a young man who loved to play his viola.  In his memory, Ryan and Zoe will make beautiful music for years to come.
