Arlette Day

Arlette Day and her husband, John, formed Day Murray Music in 1946. The name comes from the young couple’s last name and their hometown of Murray, Utah. They worked closely together and struggled in the years following World War II but persevered based on their commitment to each other, their church and their customers. The shop’s large choral music selection became widely known and used for many Mormon celebrations and community programs throughout the state. Arlette was also the first female on the Murray city council as well as many other community groups and charities. Throughout her long career in music she was very proud of the fact that her son Klint and his wife took over running the music store.
