Chrysler Elementary School and Detroit School of Arts are among 16 schools nationwide to receive $3,000 grants awarded by the Give a Note Foundation through a donation made by 21st Century Fox. Representatives from both Give a Note and Fox, including Roop Raj and Amy Andrews, visited both schools on Thursday, October 1 for a special ceremony with performances by student ensembles.
This past June, at the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) National Assembly, Give a Note Foundation board member Beth Slusher along with Fox 5 DC anchor Lauren DeMarco for 21st Century Fox, announced the schools receiving the 2015 grants. The funds are used to help teachers boost their music programs and reach more students with quality music education.
