Help PING! to Launch the Latin Percussion Ensemble!

PING! and Don Skoog, a highly regarded local music teacher, are launching a unique enrichment experience for PING! high school percussionists.  The Latin Percussion Ensemble will provide 20 hour-long instruction sessions on instruments such as the congas, timbales, bongos and claves. 

This is an exceptional enrichment opportunity for our PING! percussionists, But we can’t do it without your help! Don is generously discounting his fees, but we need to raise at least $1500 to provide all 20 sessions.   You can make this happen! 

Donate to PING! with a check mailed to: PING!, PO box 1963, Oak Park, IL 60304  OR go to the “Support PING!” page on the PING! website (www.pingoprf.org) and use the “Donate Now” button to pay via PayPal.  Please write "for Percussion Ensemble" in your check memo or Paypal note.

Your donation is tax deductible – but more importantly, you will be helping a PING! student to have a terrific music enrichment experience!    For more information, contact us at: pingoprf@gmail.com
