UMKC Conservatory Horn Studio Buys Gifts for Children in Need


Conservatory students understand the joy of giving.  The Conservatory's horn studio donated almost $300 worth of new toys to help children in low-income families have a memorable holiday.

Our beloved, late horn professor, Ellen Campbell, began this tradition in 2007, and the horn studio has adopted a family through the Salvation Army for the last 4 years.

This year, after seeing an article in the Kansas City Star, the studio students decided to donate to Operation Santa Claus, a program with the Della Lamb Community Services, that provides 1,500 families with items needed to provide a memorable holiday.

Operation Santa Claus asks for donations of new toys and the horn studio complied with a batch of new toys, pictured here.
