Featuring comments from Michael Leckrone

Michael Leckrone

COPA Lead Community Ambassador

“Music has been a very important aspect of my life for as long as I can remember, and I feel I owe an enormous debt to the teachers, performers, colleagues and students who provided the inspiration, the challenges, and the motivation that has led to my ongoing love and appreciation of the Arts.”

 

“I am confident that the positive impact music has on an individual cannot be overstated. There is a satisfaction, an excitement, and a joy in the music making process that is difficult to match by any other activity.

I am thrilled to serve as the Lead Ambassador for COPA seeking the financial support needed to build the facility portion of COPA. I believe strongly there must always be the opportunities and facilities for young men and women to pursue a passion for the arts so they may continue to learn, to grow, and to perform.”
