East Central College recently announced the college has been awarded an Arts Engagement in American Communities (AEAC) grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The $10,000 matching grant will help support the annual concert series in the John Anglin Performing Arts Center for the 2018-2019 school year.

“We are proud to host world-renowned acts like the Arianna String Quartet and St. Louis Symphony every year,” said Dr. Jennifer Judd, concert series coordinator and East Central College professor of music. “It couldn’t happen without the support of the community, the college and amazing organizations like the National Endowment for the Arts.”

The AEAC grant supports arts projects in all artistic disciplines, extending the National Endowment for the Arts’ reach to communities across the United States. These grants engage the public in diverse and excellent art in underrepresented geographic areas.
