Both the Toledo Symphony Orchestra and the Toledo Opera Association recently received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts. The NEA mission is to fund and support the arts, encouraging Americans to seize the opportunity to express themselves creatively and to exercise their imagination.

TSO received $10,000 to support the North Star Festival, which celebrates contributions of African-American musicians with a series of performances that continue through April. The Toledo Opera also received $10,000 to support “I Dream”, which chronicles the last 36 hours of Martin Luther King Jr.’s life on April 6,7 and 8.
