  • Saturday, September 21, 2013

The Charleston Academy of Music (CAM) has been awarded a $14,000 grant by the South Carolina Arts Commission for the 2014 fiscal year. This support goes towards CAM’s general operations. In addition, Target Corporation has awarded a $2,000 grant, in

recognition of the efforts of CAM in its outreach programs. The grant will fund in-school workshops organized by CAM. Local residents can see how the Arts Commission grant and local funds are benefiting CAM by visiting the academy at www.charlestonmusic.org and coming to any of the group’s events and concerts.

The South Carolina Arts Commission is the state agency charged with creating a thriving arts environment that benefits all South Carolinians, regardless of their location or circumstances. Created by the South Carolina General Assembly in 1967, the Arts Commission is working to increase public participation in the arts by providing services, grants and leadership initiatives in three areas: arts education, community arts development and artist development. Headquartered in Columbia, the Arts Commission is funded by the state of South Carolina and by the federal government through the National Endowment for the Arts. For more information, visit www.SouthCarolinaArts.com or call (803) 734-8696.

The Charleston Academy of Music, led by founder/director Eunjoo Yun, is the premier music education institution for the Lowcountry’s youth. CAM boasts more than 220 students and 20 faculty members, and regularly schedules performance opportunities for all its students. CAM also runs Kidzymphony, an after-school orchestra program in partnership with Meeting Street Academy.

In celebration of its 10th anniversary, CAM has also started two concert series with free admission, presenting guest artists/pedagogues and faculty in concerts all around Charleston.
