MCS Adds New Bus to its Fleet Thanks to the David Kelby Johnson Memorial Foundation

The Madeleine Choir School took delivery of an 84-passenger school bus in early December. The bus was made possible by grant funding from the David Kelby Johnson Memorial Foundation.
The Madeleine Choir School was introduced to Elizabeth Johnson over a decade ago when she heard the student choristers sing in the Cathedral of the Madeleine. It was through Mrs. Johnson’s love and appreciation of the choir that the school has been fortunate enough to receive the needed funding to purchase a new bus. The David Kelby Johnson Memorial Foundation continues to carry out Elizabeth’s wishes to give to those in need in the name of her grandson. The procurement of the new bus has given the school the opportunity to strengthen its transportation system and continue to offer this service to students across the Wasatch Front.

The Choir School Partners with local Music Advocates at the Mundi Project

The Mundi Project devotes every effort to provide youth access to pianos, music education, and innovative performance opportunities. They believe that every child should have the chance to be part of music, and, of course, we completely agree.
TMP provided four pianos for The Madeleine Choir School last August and these instruments have been used frequently ever since. We would also like to express our deep appreciation to the individual donors of each piano, Mary Gardner, Dorothy Harries, Joy Kahder, and Steve & Janet Witt.
Pictured here are Melanie Malinka, MCS Director of Music; Hana Janatova, TMP Executive Director; Mary Ann Erickson, TMP Board Member and Piano Bank Chair; and Matt Robertson, MCS Music Instructor.
