Help the Westinghouse Bulldogs High Stepping Marching Band
Repeated budget cuts have badly hurt our public schools. For the Pittsburgh Westinghouse High School–located in Homewood–among other things, it means they have lost their instrumental program and their chorus teacher and one teacher is now handling it all.
The students are currently working hard to save their band: The Westinghouse Bulldogs High Stepping Marching Band. The marching band hasn’t had new uniforms in over 12 years. They’re wearing different parts of old uniforms. They need basic supplies like drumsticks and reeds. And, they need music lessons.
These students are role models in their school and the keepers of their school spirit. Moreover, Westinghouse has an especially rich musical heritage. It’s alumni includes Billy Strayhorn (jazz composer, known for “Lush Life” and “Take the “A” Train”), Erroll Garner (jazz pianist and composer), Ahmad Jamal (jazz pianist), and Frank Cunimondo (jazz pianist).
Please keep that spirit and tradition alive!
