Music grants provided to schools
BOUNTIFUL — Millcreek Junior High was one of four Utah schools to receive a grant from Legacy Music Alliance, a new Utah non-profit committed to strengthening music programs and assisting aspiring artists through a variety of educational and monetary resources.
Keith Sorenson, director of the alliance’s K-12 Music Opportunity Network, or moNET, said additional grants are in the works for other schools and music programs. “Music is a critical part of what makes humans unique, it’s life-affirming and reflective of a society’s core values,” said Sorenson.
