MMSD invests in new instruments

MADISON, Wis. — Nearly $1.4 million of federal COVID-19 relief funds were used to bring musical instruments to every Madison Metropolitan School District elementary, middle and high school.

At Vel Phillips Memorial High School, this is the first time since 1967 that students have received new instruments. $98,000 was allocated for the school to fill its band room with new clarinets, trombones, trumpets and more.
