Scholarships and School Support

The North Port community is a hidden gem for music education. It is home to the largest elementary, middle, and high school string orchestra programs in Sarasota County. It also has some of the highest rated middle and high school orchestras, bands, and choirs in the county. There is so much potential in our community, and we aspire to help as many deserving students as we can through our scholarship program.


“Let us take our children seriously! Everything else follows from this…only the best is good enough for a child.”

–Zoltán Kodláy
