About this grant

This renewal grant will provide continued support to the Sphinx Organization to offer a continuum of music instruction to underserved students in Flint, Michigan. The Sphinx Overture Program, which introduces students to classical music and the violin, is offered in all elementary Flint Community Schools. The program will provide students with free group violin lessons after school. Students in the program will be eligible for additional private lessons at the school from program instructors and for scholarships to take more advanced violin lessons and classes at the Flint Institute of Music.
