The Holmes family honors the legacy of Robert L. “Bob” and Lois Holmes by establishing this fund to support to continuing arts education of public school students through support of the Tapping Individual Potential Program. Bob was the creator and director of Cremona Strings, the first black youth string ensemble in Nashville. Lois served as a school teacher and consultant, as well as a docent for Cheekwood. Both were proud educators, lovers of the arts, and pillars in the Nashville Community.
