A new article about Musica Franklin
in the Greenfield Recorder, 8/23/17
(Please note one important correction to this article:
Musica Franklin has never received any funding from the Klarman Family Foundation. Rather, in collaboration with the Mass Cultural Council, they are funding two year fellowships for teaching artists who work with youth in under served communities. Muisca Franklin has one of those.
Musica Franklin did receive a grant recently which is being used to meet the required match for the MCC SerHacer grant. That grant was from The Martha Struthers and Donald C. Farley Jr. Family Foundation. )
Musica Franklin is an independent non-profit intensive music program based on the belief that that the pursuit of musical excellence teaches students to strive for excellence in all areas of their lives. It is modeled on El Sistema, a hugely successful music and social change program for youth development that was started in Venezuela 40 years ago. El Sistema is now practiced all over the world, helping to lift up children and their families.
