Oscar Vance, former chief county detective with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office is launching Vance Community Partners Veterans Music and Art School Tuesday, June 4th, 3 pm at the Vietnam Veterans and FOP memorial, Swede and Main streets in Norristown.
After the launching of the school, a reception will be held until 5 pm at the Vance Community Partners headquarters, 216 Cherry Street. All are welcomed.
Inspired by those who served our country, Vance, a former police officer and veteran, created Vance Community Partners Veteran Music and Art School in honor of veterans, police officers, and first responders.
The school will have two locations; The Norristown Centre Theater and the Vance Community Partners Headquarters; also located in Norristown.
Music and art lessons will be given to not only our American heroes, but their families, and the public community as well.
The music department will be directed by award-winning musician, Steve Kramer, who will be in charge of all of the percussion and string instruments.
“The idea is to have kids from all walks of life who wants to play instruments like the drums, guitar, and strings. So I will be reaching out to all types of talented people and educators,” Kramer said.
Scholarships will be given to those who need it to ensure that all students get the proper chance at receiving music and art lessons. Vance Community Partners Veterans Music and Art School will be receiving a grant from the Kal and Lucille Rudman Foundation.
