Music Mondays is made possible through grants and individual contributions. Major support for this year’s expanded season comes from the City of Gresham Arts & Culture grant program. Back again will be Metro East Community Media videotaping the music for those unable to attend in person and showing it throughout their cable program schedules.
Music Mondays made possible, in part, by a City grant. Metro East is our media sponsor for Music Mondays.
