supporting music education in the Medfield schools
Wednesday, April 15 at 7pm
Medfield High School
It's become a Medfield institution... Jazz Night is just around the corner! We're excited to announce this year's Jazz Night guest artist will be renowned musician, composer, and professor of trumpet at Providence College, Alex Lee-Clark. Alex will be working with jazz students in pre-event clinics in preparation for an outstanding Jazz Night concert!
Add to that, Medfield's Jazz Program is strong across the board. In spring of 2019, Medfield’s Junior Jazz Choir, Senior Jazz Choir, and MHS Jazz Combo were all awarded Gold Medals at the MAJE State Combo & Choir Festival, AND the Junior Jazz Lab was awarded Gold Medal at the MAJE Junior Festival.
So, come and hear for yourself what the buzz is all about! Tickets are available online here or at the door.
Thank you, event sponsors: Needham Bank, Bryant University, Clay Subaru, Roche Bros. & Big Y.
Join us at our next meeting...
The MMA meets from 7-8pm on the first Tuesday of the month in the high school band room. All parents of current Medfield music students are welcome.
Contact Co-President Erika Beisler if you have any questions.
Medfield Cultural Council
The MMA, music department, and our very fortunate orchestra students would like to express deep gratitude to the Medfield Cultural Council (MCC) for awarding a grant to help pay for the orchestra clinics and Moxie Strings concert.
The MCC has been a steadfast friend to the Medfield music program and, with their support, the arts continue to flourish in Medfield.
The Medfield Cultural Council is a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
Louis and Mary Kay Smith Foundation
The MMA was ecstatic (and, frankly, floored) to recently receive a $2,500 grant from the Louis and Mary Kay Smith Family Foundation.
The grant allowed us to spread some much-needed love around the elementary school music programs. Purchases included a portable speaker system with microphones for Wheelock School -- which will allow them to hold dynamic and joyful music events wherever and whenever the mood strikes- - as well as new drums and other music equipment for Memorial School.
We can't wait to share pictures of our youngest music students enjoying the new equipment!
A Cappella Night, presented by first-time sponsor, Borchers Trust Law, was an electric night of high-energy music performed by an array of talented A Cappella groups--all under one rockin' roof in the Medfield HS Auditorium. Excited audience members were treated to an outstanding performance by featured guest, Berklee College's On the Vox, as well as crowd-pleasing tunes from Medfield's Soundwaves and Junior Jazz Choir, and groups from Montrose School, Newton North, Westwood, and Xaverian Brothers High Schools. Thank you to all who came and supported the program!

Our Individual Donors
Donations help keep the music program strong! Through them, we are able to meet a variety of music program needs not covered by the school budget, including equipment, guest artists, clinicians, commissioned works, trip support, student scholarships, and more!
During the 2018-19 school year, the MMA provided more than $30,000 in support to the K-12 Medfield Music Program.
You can donate by check or simply click here to donate through PayPal.
It takes the hands-on help of about 100 volunteers to make MMA events happen! There are plenty of opportunities. We need people to deliver wreaths, contribute snacks/drinks to events, help with set up, etc.
Contact us if you'd like to help in the future.
