Students at Charlottesville High School are getting financial assistance from professional musicians. The Bama Works Fund, which was created by the Dave Matthews Band, will help the CHS String Ensemble tour France this summer. The foundation that manages the Bama Works Fund will match any donations to the CHS students up to a total of $22,000. The high school musicians have already raised nearly $191,000, and need another $44,000 by the end of this month. If you would like to make a donation, contact Orchestra Director Laura Mulligan Thomas (pictured) at CHS. Members of the string ensemble will perform at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Central Place on the Downtown Mall.
