      Original post

      As you may know, Joplin High School was destroyed by a tornado recently. What you might not know is that the Joplin High Band lost everything from sheet music to instruments to uniforms.
      It took with it the band, orchestra and choir rooms. The band lost all its instruments (please see list below), uniforms, sheet music, music library, etc.

      If you can help or lend support in any way, the good folks at Joplin High would like to hear from you.
