The Musary’s Travels with Russell Goodluck…

We would like you to meet Russell Goodluck, a young Native American composer & now a Musary borrower!  We first met Russell through a connection that was working with the NACAP (Native American Composers Apprenticeship Program).  The NACAP supports Native American high school students and was recently honored at the White House by the First Lady as a national winner of the Coming Up Taller Arts Education Awards.  She told us about a talented young musician that would be going to college soon but did not have the necessary musical instrument to continue his studies.  After talking with Russell and learning more about his story, we knew we had to help.

Russell is a member of the Navajo Nation, and has recently been awarded a scholarship to Fort Lewis College in Colorado to study music.  The Musary is honored to be able to provide Russell with the saxophone he needs to continue his education.  The instrument has since made it all the way to Arizona and is ready to start school on September 1st.  We will provide future updates along the way.

Looks like the Musary is going to college!
