Thank you to the Mass Cultural Council

Thank you to the Mass Cultural Council

The BMMA would like to sincerely thank the Mass Cultural Council and specifically the Blackstone Cultural Council for their grant of $940 in February 2021 to help us purchase new harnesses for the Blackstone-Millville Regional music program. The harnesses allow our marching drummers to perform with greater comfort and less fatigue. Our drummers will be using these harnesses during our Marching Band & Winter Percussion seasons as well as in the parades that we participate in throughout the year.
