OrchKids, the BSO's after-school music program, has won an NEA Arts Works education grant for a second consecutive year. The $100,000 will be used to support all OrchKids initiatives, including its orchestras, choral groups, and academic tutoring. It's the second recent influx of cash for OrchKids, which received $1 million from Robert Meyerhoff and Rheda Becker a few months ago. The group photo above was taken during an OrchKids summer session in 2012.
