About this grant

This grant increase will provide partial support to the Flint Institute of Music for its 2010 Music in the Parks summer concert series. The 2010 free summer concert series included four performances at various parks in Flint and Genesee County. The Flint Symphony Orchestra performed at two concerts, including a downtown concert during the Back to the Bricks car cruise that featured the rock ‘n’ roll band, “Flash Cadillac”. The other concerts featured gospel music and an ensemble of female vocalists. 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.
