Grants for Randolph schools’ music

The music department in the Randolph Public Schools will receive $1,900 in grants from the Randolph Local Education Fund. The three grants will be implemented this school year.

Eric Laprade, chairman of the music department, received a grant for the districtwide Symphony in the Schools program, a yearlong collaboration with the South Shore Conservatory in Hingham.

During three week-long residencies, professional musicians will hold performances, master classes, and musicianship demonstrations, and conclude the week with evening community performances at Stetson Hall.

Also receiving grant money is Tracy Nadolny, music teacher at the Young Elementary School, for a multicultural concert; and Sara Goddu, choral director at Randolph Community Middle School, to support the school's drama club in its production of "Into the Woods, Jr."


The Randolph Local Education Fund was established in 1993 to supplement the curriculum of the town's schools and is funded by donations from taxpayers.
