Support Music in Schools Scholarship

Support Music in Schools By Chris Murphy

The last MoBand of the 2014 season also featured the presentation of the annual MoBand Scholarship for music education. This year, Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group matched the annual contribution to offer four $500 scholarships. We appreciate the local businesses that support arts and music in the schools.
