  The Boyd Tinsley Fund  
     
  The most famous graduate of the CHS Orchestra Program, Boyd Tinsley (’82) of the Dave Matthews Band, has made a generous donation to the Charlottesville City Schools. Mr. Tinsley's gift is to foster music, tennis, and academic tutoring, particularly for economically disadvantaged students. Scholarships for private music lessons will be provided to members of the Walker, Buford, and CHS Orchestras who would otherwise be unable to afford them. Twenty-six orchestra members received lessons during the 2003-04 school year, and more will be served this year. We are very grateful to Mr. Tinsley for his community spirit and generosity, which will help so many students realize their full musical potential.

The Boyd Tinsley Fund is administered by the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation.
