Edward Van Halen is honored to be a part of The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation. Edward has been interviewed for a tribute video to Foundation, to be shown in October at the Americans for the Arts gala in NYC, honoring the Foundation with their National Music Education Award.
Here’s photos of Eddie and Janie Van Halen pictured with Vincent Womack and Foshay HS graduate Leo Ruiz.
We look forward to watching the interview in October, if it becomes available online.
The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation donates musical instruments to under-funded school music programs across the country in an effort to give more students the many benefits of music education, help them achieve more in school and inspire creativity and expression through playing music. Hundreds of thousands of students have benefited and thousands of instruments have been donated to 1,356 school music programs across the country.
