Music4Life to Benefit Everett Public Schools
“We’re delighted to launch this new partnership with Music4Life for our kids in the Everett Public Schools,” Superintendent Cohn says. “As we re-establish strings at our elementary schools and a full orchestra program in the district, and we continue to seek ways to make our remarkable band programs accessible to children whose families cannot afford instruments, Music4Life comes to our aid. The Music4Life folks will make it possible for many more of our students to gain the thrill of fully participating in a band or orchestra without worrying about where they will get an instrument.”
A new “Everett Music4Life Booster Club” is led by Deputy Superintendent Joyce Stewart and will be responsible for ongoing local fund raising to sustain the effort. Other booster club members include Jane Webber, Dr. Mark Valentine, Carol Wheeler, North Middle School music teacher Emily Cheever, Kathryn Goforth and Georgia Lindquist.
