Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation Grant to Sequoia Middle School
Fontana Unified School District is excited to announce the awarding of the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation Grant to Sequoia Middle School.
The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation was inspired by the motion picture Mr. Holland’s Opus. Michael Kamen, the film’s composer started the foundation in order to show his commitment to music education.
The foundation donates both new and refurbished instruments to school music programs that lack the resources to accommodate all the students they serve.
Sequoia Middle School is known for their strong music program. Unfortunately, over the last few years funding for music education has been drastically reduced. Sequoia students will now benefit from new and refurbished instruments to support their music program.
The total retail value of the grant is $16,310.00.
We look forward to our continued partnership with Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
