The CMA FOUNDATION has announced it will donate $1.66 million in grants for music education in 2015. Programs benefitting from the grants include: EDUCATION THROUGH MUSIC, HARMONY PROJECT, LITTLE KIDS ROCK, METRO NASHVILLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS, MUSICIAN'S CORNER, NASHVILLE CHILDREN'S THEATER, NOTES FOR NOTES, THE QUEST CENTER, RYAN'S GUITAR PROJECT, THE SALVATION ARMY, SAVANNAH MUSIC FESTIVAL, TENNESSEE PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, and the W.O. SMITH SCHOOL.
“If it weren’t for our artists, who all perform for free during CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL, and the thousands of fans who support the event each year, these donations would not be possible,” said CMA CEO SARAH TRAHERN. “The CMA FOUNDATION donates to causes that are important to our community, but every dollar is given on behalf of the artists and fans that support MUSIC FEST each JUNE.”
Tickets to the nightly concerts at LP FIELD sold out in NOVEMBER. FAN FAIR X at MUSIC CITY CENTER tickets will go on sale TOMORROW (1/27) at 10a (CT). For more information, visit www.CMAfest.com.
