MCACA Grant Award

Michigan Council for Arts & Cultural Affairs awards Grant to the
Motor City (Warren) Symphony Orchestra

The Motor City (Warren) Symphony Orchestra (MCSO), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing cultural experiences and musical education enriching lives throughout the tri-county area, has been awarded a grant of $11,250 from the State of Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA). The grant was awarded through the MCACA peer review process and was one of nearly 633 applications to compete for MCACA fiscal year 2017-2018 funding.

The grant will allow the Motor City (Warren) Symphony Orchestra to present to the community two (2) concerts this season – the first is a Holiday Concert on Sunday, December 10, 2017 at the Andiamo Celebrity Showroom as we present “A Holiday Concert featuring “Detroit’s Queen of the Blues,” Thornetta Davis.”

Our second concert will take place on Sunday, April 29, 2018 at 3:00 pm, at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts, 44575 Garfield Road, Clinton Twp., MI 48038. Tickets for the Holiday Concert may be purchased through the Andiamo Celebrity Show Room (586) 268-3200; tickets for April concert may be purchased through the Macomb Center Box Office (586) 286-2222.

In addition, this grant will provide funding for our annual Youth Concerts to be held on Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. in the Warren Woods Community Auditorium at Warren Woods Middle School – 13400 E. Twelve Mile Road, Warren, MI 48088.
These concerts are supported by the MICHIGAN COUNCIL FOR ARTS AND CULTURAL AFFAIRS and the NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS.

The MCACA peer review process allows for each grant application to be competitively considered by a panel of in-state and out-of-state arts and culture professionals. This ensures the taxpayers, who support this project through legislative appropriations, and all other visitors or residents in Michigan will have access to the highest quality arts and cultural experiences.
