Posted on: June 19, 2017

The National Endowment for the Arts has announced that 51 orchestras have received grants totaling $878,000 in the agency’s second round of fiscal year 2017. The grants, ranging from $10,000 to $90,000, support orchestral engagement, access, and learning opportunities for students. The grants allow orchestras to bring orchestral music to rural areas that don’t have ready access to live classical music; collaborate with other arts disciplines like dance, theater, and vocal arts; help provide after-school music instruction; support interdisciplinary learning initiatives; present premieres of new works; offer free festivals; innovate programming for new audiences; support music therapy with training and participation of certified therapists; and offer interactive online experiences for classrooms and students.
