Rhode Island Philharmonic to benefit from grant

The Rhode Island Philharmonic is one of dozens of groups to receive funding from the Rhode Island Foundation, during their latest round of grant awards.

The Foundation awarded more than $16 million in awards to projects throughout the state in the first half of 2013.

The Philharmonic was awarded $85,000 for general support.

That money will enable the Philharmonic to provide performances and music education in the area.
