Welcome to the Foxboro Music Association
Each year, the FMA awards music scholarships to enable middle and high school students to pursue music education beyond their in-school experience. Students in grades 5 through 11 must audition and write an essay. The scholarships may be used at an approved summer music camp or for private music lessons. Thanks to the generosity of the many sponsors and donors, the FMA was able to award $4000 to twenty-seven students.
In the junior division, Cindy Lu (violin, grade 5) was awarded first place. Second place went to Robert Silver (bass, grade 7), third place to Emma Pugatch (violin, grade 7), fourth place to Terrence Maloney (violin, grade 7), and fifth place to Juliana Nader (cello, grade 8).
