    The Sandalwood High School Band is a finalist in Barry Manilow's Manilow Music Project, which provides a school with $100,000 worth of instruments. 

    QUICK FACTS: 

    • The instruments students are using today are the same instruments used by students in 1993.
    • The band program doesn't receive funding from the district or the school.
    • Sandalwood is a Title 1 school; the band program has requested $3,000 each year from the nearly $500,000 Title 1 grant that the school receives, but has continuously been denied.
