An Adams High School group has been awarded a grant from Oakland County to host a residency project at the school in the spring.
Adams Parents for Instrumental Music is one of six area organizations to share more than $13,000 in grants recently awarded by the Oakland County Arts, Culture & Film through the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
The $1,250 grant will help Adams host a residency project with Pro Musica of Detroit, featuring classical guitarist Dimitris Kotronakis, in this spring.
