Joshua Elmore is a young, gifted black bassoonist soon graduating from Shaker Heights High School in Ohio. He is applying to major music schools, and when you hear him play you'll know why. He's been borrowing a bassoon from the SHPS, but now that he's graduating he will need his own professional quality instrument. His family is without the means to provide that, and is struggling with his application fees. Towards these pressing issues Joshua has established a GoFundMe page. If anyone can assist with identifying funding sources, or is willing to help him directly, that would all be so greatly appreciated. Please go to Joshua's page and hear him play.
