About the MusicMatters program: Created by Salem Five Bank, MusicMatters is a charitable program committed to preserving music education throughout the Greater Boston area, Boston’s North Shore and the Merrimack Valley. The program supports and supplements funding to music programs in school districts that have been forced to drastically cut back funding for this important part of the curriculum. Additionally, the program has quickly become a premier platform for aspiring high school singer/songwriters to achieve the opportunities and exposure necessary to launch a successful career in music.
MusicMatters Past Winners:
On September 19th, 2014, Katrina Gustafson, of Lynnfield, MA won $500 for her high school music department. She recorded her song “Everyday” in the River Music Hall, and it was featured on the River airwaves. This past November, Katrina played her song at RiverFeast in front of 500 people (opening for Scars on 45 and David Gray)!
