The Transylvania Times -

Arts Council Awards Grants – Brevard NC


The Transylvania Community Arts Council has awarded two Grassroots Grants to local organizations. The winners of the grants are the Brevard Philharmonic and Rise & Shine.

A priority for sub-granting grassroots funds are to support arts and arts in education programs conducted by qualified artists. The Grassroots Grants are in partnership with the North Carolina Arts Council.

The Brevard Philhar-monic will use their grant funds towards hiring professional musicians for the Music In Schools program for kindergarten through fifth grade. The goal of the program is to introduce the various instruments of an orchestra, played by professional musicians, to every elementary school student.

Rise & Shine will use funds for their program entitled “Songs of the Times and the Arts.” This program introduces students to basic voice, diction and techniques needed for vocal music performances. They will also study the importance of music and how it influences theatre and the arts.

TC Arts Council also partners with Henderson County, Polk County and Jackson County each year to give out Regional Artists Grants to artists from those communities.

TC Arts Council is proud to support local artists and local arts organizations in the community. These projects were supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
