Pre-Louisville Orchestra Concert Event!
April 10, 2017

The students did a fantastic job playing before the Louisville Orchestra concert on April 1st, and we were SO happy to have the support of Teddy See More

THE STORY:

In 1997, in a donated house in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Louisville, KY, Mr. Keith Cook of the Louisville Orchestra founded a musical training ground and enrichment center for the most disadvantaged youth in our state. He named this musical home the West Louisville Talent Education Center. Since then, WESTEC has provided violin instruction for over 200 students at virtually no cost to their families. 200 students have walked the halls and filled the rooms of the little donated house of WESTEC with the amazing sounds of progress and hope. 200 students, and counting, have sought out the WESTEC home for not only their musical enrichment, but for the warmth and safety it has provided to young people who could not find peace anywhere else. Now, however, that home is breaking down. The WESTEC house, which was already in need of repairs when it was donated in 1997, has fallen victim to years of wear and tear, including water damage, mold, busted pipes, cracked floors, broken windows, and a battered roof. Minor repairs have been made over the years, but nothing substantial that could keep the building in a safe and stable state. The WESTEC home is in need for the warmth and affection that it has provided so many others over the years. Please consider donating to help us not merely sustain this home, but continue building on the sound that it has fostered in our youth.  All donations will go toward fixing, repairing, and adding onto the legacy of the West Louisville Talent Education Center.
