Young Audiences New York Announces Eighteen Recipients of Grants to Support Music Programs

« Back

Mar 20, 2012
New York, NY

Young Audiences New York (yaNY) has announced the recipients of the inaugural spring 2012 MELODY grants. The grants, by yaNY and Michael Dorf's Fixing Instruments in Kids' Schools (FIKS), were awarded to eighteen schools with support for instrument repair, as well as instrumental residencies and performances, in amounts ranging from $450 to $7,000. The program benefits students and music programs in jeopardy across New York City.

The MELODY grant program is founded on the belief that all students benefit from active engagement in instrumental music education, regardless of the student's or school's economic means. MELODY, with the support of FIKS, seeks to address the all-too-common scenario of a school music program handicapped by damaged instruments by providing financial support for instrument service repair and by providing supplemental music education experiences through residency opportunities with skilled yaNY teaching artists.
