For a second consecutive year, the CMA FOUNDATION will donate $50,000 toward SUMMER music education programs for students at the W.O. SMITH NASHVILLE COMMUNITY MUSIC SCHOOL. The contribution is part of CMA's "KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING" initiative.
“By providing funding for the outstanding SUMMER camp music programs at W.O. SMITH, we are able to bridge the school year and keep these deserving students engaged through the summer, so they can further develop their skills as musicians and performers,” said CMA FOUNDATION Board of Directors Chair KITTY MOON EMERY.
In total, 170 children receive expert music training in a fun and rewarding atmosphere for an average cost of $300 per child. To date, CMA and the CMA FOUNDATION have provided more than $7.6 million to the programs.
