Phish Fans Fund Bangor 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.

In honor of Phish's upcoming shows at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion, June 25th and 26th, the Mockingbird Foundation is sending a check for $1500 to support music education through the Bangor Public Schools Music Dept. in Bangor, ME.

This is Mockingbird's 4th grant in Maine, and our 407th grant overall. The Foundation has now disbursed $150,500 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.

Midcoaster This is a great program! Bangor could use support in the high school's arts academy. It's a spirit booster, and it can make people (students especially) in remote areas feel like they're "on the map."
