Charity of the Month: St. Edward High School Trash Talkers

by | June 5th, 2014

Music has long been found to have a direct impact on society and culture. It’s been proven to improve not only a person’s mood, but their cognitive state as well. Furthermore, music has been shown to promote development and maintenance of identity roles within a community.

This is why cultivating roots in music is important to the Cleveland personal injury attorneys with the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, and we are doing our part by sponsoring a local musical group comprised entirely of high school students.

The St. Edward High School Trash Talkers were founded several years ago as a musical outlet for students. The group uses trashcans and anything else that can ring a tone when struck to create complex rhythms and beats. Today, the Trash Talkers can be seen regularly at events, parades, and festivals scattered throughout the greater Cleveland area. The group will next play at the opening ceremonies of the Continental Cup on the 3rd of July and will then play at the Burning River Fest on July 26th.

Getting equipment, gear, and transportation can be costly for the group though, which is why our firm is donating $1 to the group for every new “Like” our Facebook page receives throughout the month of June.

At Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy, we love giving back to organizations making a positive impact on the area and encourage you to stay aware of how we are helping these groups by regularly checking the Community Involvement page of our website.
