DSO Gets $1m Boost from Honda
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra has received a gift of $1,000,000 from car maker Honda to establish the Power of Music Dreams Education Fund and bolster the DSO’s youth music programs. Specifically, this initiative intends to provide the children of Detroit increased musical opportunities. In the next five years, Honda and the DSO aim to launch the Power of Dreams String Project, which will provide introductory music education/string training to children in metro-Detroit communities, establish the Power of Dreams Music Scholar program, which will provide private lessons to aspiring students with financial need in the String Project, DSO Civic Ensembles, and the Detroit School for the Arts, and provide increased support of DSO Civic Youth Ensemble performances.
