Yesterday, students at Pelham Prep Academy in the Bronx were given an $88,000 surprise. StubHub teamed up with the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation to present new instruments to the music program. Some of the kids were using instruments from the 1950's and many of them were in bad shape.
They were shocked by the gift and then it got even better: lovelytheband came out to perform for everyone! lovelytheband's leader Mitchy Collins told AM New York, "Music, I think, for all of us, in school was a bit of a release and a place we could run away to and express ourselves when we were figuring out what that exactly meant."
