Crittenden musicians enjoy new instruments

Students at Crittenden Middle School in Mountain View received a surprise from an unexpected source during their Thursday music assembly.

Fidelity Investments’ new Mountain View Investor Center, located at 2580 W. El Camino Real, donated $21,000 in new instruments to the school’s music program. The contribution supports Fidelity’s ongoing efforts to promote arts education in public schools.

Following a performance by the Crittenden orchestra and jazz band, a group from Fidelity presented the new instruments, including a baritone saxophone, a double French horn, two tenor saxophones, two violas, two cellos and five flutes.

The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation facilitated the donation.
