George Oliphant, star of NBC show “George to the Rescue”, came to the rescue of the Bloomingdale School of Music at 323 West 108th Street. The school, which offers inexpensive or free music lessons to children and adults in the neighborhood, gave $250,000 in scholarships last year.
The show renovated the school’s David Greer Music Hall and its outdoor courtyard, with pro bono work and supplies donated by 25 contractors. The episode is expected to air in the spring.
