Phish Fans Fund Charlotte Music

ImageThe 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.

In honor of Phish's upcoming show at PNC Music Pavilion, June 21st, the Mockingbird Foundation is sending a check for $1500 to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools Foundation to support the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools' Performing Arts Department in Charlotte, NC.

This is Mockingbird's 9th grant in North Carolina, and our 405th grant overall. The Foundation has now disbursed $147,500 in Tour Grants, 10% of its more than $1.4M in grants covering all 50 states. Watch for news posts here at, or the evolving press release at, 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.

heelphan As a native Charlottean and a product of our public schools (and the Performing Arts department from the Charlotte-Meck schools), thank you to the Mockingbird Foundation for the sorely needed assistance. In addition, my kids will be in a Charlotte-Mecklenburg public school starting this year, so this will directly affect and help them!
Keep arts in schools!
