About this grant

The Flint Institute of Music is the home of the Flint Symphony Orchestra, the Flint School of Performing Arts, and the Flint Youth Theatre. The Flint Institute of Music is focused on providing a variety of music, dance, and theatre opportunities for residents of all ages. Annually, about 300,000 children and adults take lessons, receive educational programming, and attend concerts and performances offered by the grantee. This grant will provide support for: 1) a community-wide band and orchestra festival for area high school musicians; 2) phase 1 of the development of Flint Youth Theatre’s original production of “The Nourish Project”; 3) a world class violinist to perform with the Flint Symphony Orchestra; and 4) development of a new strategic plan for the music institute.
