Phish Fans Fund Commerce City Music

The all-volunteer, fan-run Mockingbird Foundation is once again celebrating Phish tour by making unsolicited Tour Grants supporting a music program near each of the venues at which the band will perform. This series of Tour Grants covers all of the U.S. locations Phish will play during the band's 2019 Summer Tour.

Adams City High SchoolIn honor of Phish's upcoming shows at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, August 30th and 31st and September 1st, the Mockingbird Foundation is sending a check for $1500 to support music education through the Adams City High School Choral Program in Commerce City, CO. The program includes three choirs and guitar classes, plus a concert band, jazz band, drumline, chamber orchestra, concert orchestra, and mariachi.

This is Mockingbird's 15th grant in Colorado, and our 414th grant overall. The Foundation has now disbursed $161,000 in Tour Grants, 10% of its more than $1.4M in grants covering all 50 states. Watch for news posts here at Phish.net, or the evolving press release at mbird.org, for news on other "miracle" tour grants this summer. And please consider making a contribution, to help us give back to the communities we've touched.
