Music program benefits from ‘Fulton Homes Giving Music the Edge’


Maricopa High School was notified recently that the music department was selected to receive seed money to begin a jazz band.

The Fulton Homes Giving Music The Edge program is a partnership between Fulton Homes and Phoenix-based radio station 103.9 — The Edge. The program has been designed to support music programs throughout the Valley to ensure that “we can continue to help build the next generation of great Arizona musicians, one at a time.”

Maricopa High School Assistant Principal and former band instructor Valerie Whitchurch authored the winning proposal, which requested funds and donations to provide the instruments needed for a quality jazz band program.

Whitchurch recorded a radio spot that will be airing on The Edge, promoting the program throughout December.

The donated instruments should be arriving on the high school campus by the end of January.
