Jenkintown teen launches Positive Notes

JENKINTOWN >> Charly Avril, a 14-year-old from Jenkintown who plays flute and piccolo in the middle school band at Abington Friends School and with the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County, has launched Positive Notes to collect used instruments and financial contributions to repair used instruments and purchase new ones for students in need.

Her efforts support the work of YOBC, which offers free, after-school music classes in school districts that have had to reduce their funding for instrumental music.

So far, donors have contributed a total of more than $5,000 dollars in both instruments and cash.
