About this grant

This grant will provide partial support to the Flint Institute of Music for its Music in the Parks concert series. The 2009 free summer concert series will include four performances at various parks in Flint and Genesee County. This year, the Flint Symphony Orchestra will perform at two concerts, including a downtown concert with the Motown group, The Contours. Concerts featuring gospel music and other local groups will also be held. Music in the Parks attracts a diverse audience by offering residents an opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of live musical performances in different locations throughout the community.
