On May 2, musicians from the Columbus Symphony Orchestra came to perform for the students at The Run The Race Center Day School, located at 880 S Wayne Ave., on the westside of Columbus. The event was sponsored by The Brian Muha Memorial Foundation.
The music filled the room and moved the children. They were transported to a beautiful world, just what they need every day. Now they want to learn to play the violin, flute, harp, and guitar.
After lunch, the children made thank-you cards for the musicians. Several said they wish the concert could have gone on for another hour.
The Day School is looking for donations of musical instruments (guitars, violins, flutes) that the children can use for practice. The school is also looking for individuals who may be willing to volunteer their time to teach the students how to use the instruments for one or two hours a week.

The Day School, sponsored by The Brian Muha Foundation, opened in September 2020. It is a small school, with only 10 students in attendance for the first year. Most of the classes were held at The Run The Race Farm, where the children could learn outside.
Now in its third year, the school has 20 students. The Day School is free of charge and classes are offered at The Center and at The Run The Race Farm.
