Fall Marlborough Benefit Partner • Support Music in the Public Schools
Support our benefit partner, the Marlborough Public Schools Music Association, by checking your coat at the door when you enter the show! All donations are are voluntary. Paradise City has raised more than half a million dollars at our events over the past 27 years to support community non-profits.
The Marlborough Public Schools Music Association (MPSMA) is a non-profit organization formed specifically to support all music students in the Marlborough school system, with an emphasis on the higher grades. Since 1998, these enthusiastic volunteers have been operating a coat and package check at Paradise City Marlborough.
Their financial assistance includes vocal and dance groups as well as instrumental. The members are the parents of the music students, the students themselves, the music teachers and numerous community members with a love for music and a strong belief in the importance of music education.
This volunteer organization provides revenue that:
- Enables the Association to present annual scholarships to graduating seniors who will be continuing their education in the music field
- Provides a variety of student functions (such as an Awards Banquet) throughout the year
- Supports student music programs and activities
- Sends students to cultural performances and on performing trips, including competitive performances
In addition, the Association works with the Music Department Coordinator and music teachers to provide assistance in acquiring items not funded in the school’s budget, provides chaperones necessary on buses, parades and cultural activities and provides extra services to help concerts run efficiently.
Over the years, the Association has raised thousands of dollars for the music program, purchasing many new items (such as sound equipment, acoustical panels), providing performance dresses and suits for concerts and competitions, and repairing older instruments.
Paradise City is proud to support the Marlborough Public Schools Music Association, and we hope that you feel the same way. Thank you for your generous support!
