The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announced that it has received a generous grant of $600,000 from the Dresner Foundation to provide comprehensive music education for underserved youth in Detroit. The grant will enable the DSO’s Wu Family Academy to launch a new, free entry-level program to be named the Dresner Foundation Allegro Ensemble in addition to expanding the reach of its Educational Concert Series and Classroom Edition webcasts.

According to the orchestra’s statement, the Wu Family Academy programs provide services to more than 100,000 students throughout Southeast Michigan each season.
