As we prepare for the completion of the Benson High School Performing Arts Center, the Benson Music Boosters have taken on a project to raise funds for a grand piano.  We are off to a good start thanks to the generous donation from the City of Benson given on behalf of the “Beautify Benson” campaign, but more donations are needed.


“The music staff at Benson Schools have been researching piano options and will be narrowing choices down to five or six pianos.   We then hope to experience each piano with a live (not virtual) visit in order to find one that best suits our needs in our exciting new space.” stated Shelly Mikkelson.   


We encourage families to consider giving in memory of, or in honor of, someone special in their lives.  All donations will be recognized on a plaque that will be displayed in the new Performing Arts Center.  Our goal is to raise $40,000.    


Donations (payable to Benson Schools) can be sent to:


Brock Duncan or Shelly Mikkelson

Benson High School

1400 Montana Avenue 

Benson, MN  56215 


Please include “grand piano” in the memo and a note specifying details on who should be recognized.  Once again, thank you for your continued support for the arts in our schools and community!
