A letter from Bali Daniels
Dear Friends of Strings Donors,
Thank you for supporting the Alamo Heights Strings Program. I am especially grateful because this program has been my lifeblood for nine years. In fifth grade, I had a playing test over “Jingle Bells” and I couldn’t play past the first two measures. It was incredibly embarrassing and I went home to practice until I got it right. That was the night I realized that playing the violin was important to me. I met one of my private teachers on the first day of sixth grade and she got me into competitive auditions such as the All-Region orchestras. High school is where I met one of the most welcoming and fun communities I have ever been a part of the chamber orchestra. I write all of this to you to express my gratitude for keeping this program up and running. I have had so many opportunities from being in Strings: playing in the pit for two musicals, being in leadership positions, and growing with a community that has supported me time and time again.
This year, I am very excited to be named one of the scholarship winners. I plan on attending San Antonio College this fall with the hopes of majoring in Psychology. I dream of becoming a
researcher in the realm of psychology/neuroscience. This scholarship will greatly help me reach that goal. I will continue playing violin throughout college and hope to be a part of an adult
orchestra later in life.
