The UMKC Conservatory's Academy has received a $15,000 grant from The Edward G. and Kathryn E. Mader Foundation.  This generous grant allows the Academy to purchase 4–5 new instruments and provide maintenance for them for 1–2 years.

These instruments are loaned to students for their exclusive use while they are in the Academy's Musical Bridges program.  Musical Bridges continues to add 8–10 students to its program each year, making the instruments extremely important to the program and to the students who use them.

Thank you to the Mader Foundation.
