On Friday, February 13, Michael Palmer, director of the Kalamazoo Male Chorus, presented a big check for one thousand dollars to Julie Davis, the choral music teacher at the Maple Street Magnet School for the Arts, and Dr. Jeffrey Boggan, principal. The donation was made at a presentation before all of the choral music students upon their return from a day of touring other Kalamazoo schools to encourage younger students’ interest in vocal music. After the check was presented, the students serenaded Palmer and several other members of the KMC who also attended.
The money was donated by the members of the KMC after they heard about a fundraiser that Davis organized last fall. At the presentation Palmer stated, “Over the Christmas break the KMC put together a matching fundraiser of our own. One of the members offered a dollar-for-dollar match up to $500.00 for a total of $1000. And the match was met. As a way of offering our thanks to you, the kids and the choir program, this money is to help support your choral music program at Maple Street.” While the KMC receives support from the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation and other donors, Palmer emphasized that the money given to Davis was contributed entirely by the KMC members.
