a big shout-out goes to...

Thank You, 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 last month's extraordinary Blake and MHS orchestra clinic and concert experience with The Moxie Strings. The MCC has been a steadfast friend to the Medfield music program and, with their support, the arts continue to flourish in Medfield. Thank you!

 

This program was supported in part by a grant from the Medfield Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

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.

 

The words THANK YOU don't seem to cut it; our deepest gratitude to the Louis and Mary Kay Smith Family Foundation. We can't wait to share pictures of our youngest music students enjoying the new equipment--keep an eye on medfieldmusicassociation.com for those.

We look forward to hosting Superintendent Jeff Marsden at our next regular MMA meeting on March 3 at 7pm in the MHS band room. Dr. Marsden will kick off the session with an overview of the district budgeting process, followed by regular MMA business, including upcoming events and updates from music director Jason Bielik. All current parents welcome.

 

We hope to see you there!
