Rainbow City Band
February 10, 2010
Rainbow City Band is about community and diversity. While it's an LGBTQ and Allies organization, the band reaches audiences on a broad spectrum by giving back in small and large ways. From collecting canned goods for the hungry during the holiday season to volunteering their musical talents at events like the AIDS and Breast Cancer walks, Rainbow City Band never hesitates to help others in need. My involvement in the band started when I carried water for the marching season. I stepped it up the following year by pushing a member of the drum line in a wheelchair so that she could continue to participate and do what she loves. After that, I was hooked, and I'm a full on member of the band!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
meeting so many wonderful people and building a huge network of friends within a short period of time after moving to the area. I've also learned a few things by taking on percussion which I've never played before!
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
dedicated. The amount of hours some of the people put into this organization are equal to or more than that of a full time job.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
do some amazing things. It could purchase some much needed new instruments and shore up some really great rehearsal space!
