With help from generous donors, in 2017 the Festival funded its first round of five $300 scholarships to Grand County students grades 2-12 for private music lessons during the 2017-18 school year. Thanks to the enthusiastic response of community supporters, the MMF was able to fund a second round for the 2018-19 school year. Scholarships were awarded at the MMF's annual Labor Day Concert in the park. The second round of recipients include a senior on tenor-saxophone, a junior on flute and piccolo, a freshman on cello, and two upper elementary students on violin.
Pending additional funding, applications for the third round of scholarships will be available April 1, 2019, and due to the MMF office Friday, May 17 at 5 pm. Recipients will receive award notification over the summer and will receive funding distributions at the Labor Day 2019 Family Picnic Concert at Old City Park.
