Grant brings international music to county schools
DeKALB – The College of Visual and Performing Arts at Northern Illinois University received a $2,500 grant from the DeKalb County Community Foundation to help bring the Arts Midwest World Fest to DeKalb County during the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 school years.
Working with the superintendents and other representatives of school districts in DeKalb, Sycamore and Sandwich, college dean Rich Holly said he is excited about Arts Midwest World Fest coming to the county.
“Arts Midwest World Fest will bring four internationally-touring music acts to DeKalb County, one per semester, over the next two school years,” he said. “Each of the four partners – NIU, DeKalb schools, Sycamore schools and Sandwich schools – will have each group in residence for one full day, teaching the students about the music of the country from which they hail.”
