It's not something we like to hear, but our $40 million school district doesn't have enough money to fund adequately its music program. The biggest issue seems to be that there's no money for new instruments. To address the problem, the HCSD Music Department is looking for help from the community.
Tonight--Monday, November 21--is the first meeting of the Hudson Friends of Music. At the meeting, which takes place at 7 p.m. in the band room at Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School, the group will be discussing upcoming concerts, fundraising ideas, and community outreach opportunities.
