Madison Jazz Society Awards 2020-21 Grant to Belleville High School
December 3, 2020
In November, the Madison Jazz Society awarded grants totaling $4,479 from its School Grant Fund to music programs in Wisconsin schools to help students learn about and perform jazz. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, grant requests were received from only nine schools (some schools have suspended their music and arts programs). Teachers were encouraged to apply for grants to purchase items and equipment that will help them teach virtually, which many of them are doing.
Belleville High School (Stephanie Meir, Director) was awarded $529 to help purchase Noteflight for their Jazz Band’s use.
