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.
