GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) The annual Connecting with Community Awards highlight community partnerships that help West Michigan grow and thrive. The winner of the 2016 Connecting with Community Awards is Mind Meets Music.
Mind Meets Music is an educational program that cultivates children’s academic success through music. Instructors come into classrooms within our communities’ most vulnerable schools and focuses on teaching literacy through music.
