Cleveland Band

The Winnetka Neighborhood Council voted to fund a $5,000 Neighborhood Purpose Grant for the Grover Cleveland Charter High School Marching Band. After the COVID-19 crisis upended the band’s 2020 competition season, the Cleveland Marching Band’s student musicians are looking forward to an invigorated 2021 program. The grant money will be used to purchase sheet music and assist in covering the cost of licensing fees for the award winning music group.

Maria Sherman, president of the Grover Cleveland Charter High School Marching Band Booster Club, explained that the funding would benefit the individual students, the entire school body, and the community at large. “Having a strong music program will enhance the school’s reputation both locally and throughout Southern California. As our award-winning band travels to various competitions, performing in front of thousands of families throughout the state, it helps solidify Cleveland High School’s place on the map of great schools. The Winnetka community can take pride in its gem of a school,” she said.
