Celebrating over a hundred years of service to the community, Flint Institute of Music (FIM) is a multi-disciplinary performing arts organization transforming the community through the power of the performing arts. Reaching more than 300,000 people annually through lessons, classes, outreach programs, performances and concerts, FIM remains the oldest example of community-planned music in the United States. FIM is credited as an early adopter of the concept of arts and culture as an integral aspect of community well-being and has continued to grow and expand to meet the changing needs of Flint and the region.
