Music Institute of Chicago's success at making music education accessible to all ages during tight economic times was the focus of a recent CBS-2 Morning News story. "With cutbacks in arts programming at so many public schools, MIC's mission to bring music to students of all ages and abilities is more important than ever before," CBS reports.
On April 10, CBS-2 Morning News reporter Vince Gerasole visited the Music Institute and introduced Chicago audiences to Axiom Brass, the Musical Theater program's SWAT team singers, and a group of young Suzuki violinisits.
