Flint Institute of Music Receives $75,000 Grant from PNC


The Flint Institute of Music announced they have been awarded a $75,000 grant from the PNC Foundation to enhance the physical health, emotional competence, cognitive development and school readiness through music and dance for preschoolers enrolled in the Head Start program.

The Flint School of Performing Arts (FSPA) and Head Start Partnership gives children from economically disadvantaged families the opportunity to assimilate literacy, numeracy and social lessons in a fashion that only arts can provide. A special public event to celebrate the grant will be held in the atrium of the Flint Institute of Music on April 18th beginning at 10 a.m.

The grant from the PNC Foundation, which receives its principal funding from the PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., will allow the FSPA/Head Start Partnership to offer programming consisting of two components. The first is five day music and dance residencies at the FSPA for 216 four-year-olds and their teachers from participating Head Start centers like the Beecher and Carman-Ainsworth School Districts, and the Genesee County Community Action Center. The second component is training workshops for 70 teachers from the aforementioned centers.
