"Greensboro, North Carolina, May 14, 2015– Eastern Music Festival has received a $12,500 grant from the Lincoln Financial Foundation in support of EMF Encircling the City. Developed by Dr. Diane Phoenix-Neal, EMF Faculty and former board member, the program now in its fifth year, is an educational performance and service-learning project designed in collaboration with the Greensboro Public Library. During the summer, EMF String Scholar quartets travel to branches of the library to offer a short program of major works from classical literature highlighting living composers. Hailed as a successful program by the library and the families they serve, EMF Encircling the City and the EMF String Scholars engage children and invite their imagination and desire to learn—a shared mission with the Public Library’s Summer Reading Program.
