Congratulations to the Milford Community Band Scholarship Recipients!

Winners of the 2013 Music Scholarships with members of the Milford Community Band selection committee are:
Front row: Cameron Young; Emma Moorman; Sophia Williams; Mya MacFarland; and Cole Garlick
Second row: Melina Hudson; Emily Holstein; and Conor Christie
Back row: Todd Mentzer; MCB Founder Joe Lear; Arnold Leftwich; and Kay Meade

The Milford Community Band (MCB) awarded 8 area students with music scholarships. The scholarships include 8 private music lessons at the Milford Music Center. Over the past decade, the MCB has awarded over 87 scholarships to Milford’s elementary and middle school students. The lessons are valued at $120.


“ It’s a fact that kids who play in school bands do better academically and socially,” says Kay Meade, a trombone player in the MCB and member of the selection committee. “Everything we want our kids to be can be learned through music,” she said.


Emily Holstein, a scholarship winner and seventh grader at Milford Middle School, is excited about getting better at playing tuba. “I want to improve and get on the level of other kids in the band, “ she said.
