Due to the recent information provided by local health department officials, all employees are to be masked while working performances, productions, and/or events until further notice.

COVID-19 Update

Effective immediately, all who enter the J. Dallas Dort Music Center (Flint Institute of Music) are required to wear a mask. This includes FSPA students, families, faculty, and staff. Students will also be required to use bell covers on all wind and brass instruments.  Bell covers are being ordered and will be available in the FSPA Office soon. This mandate is only for the J. Dallas Dort Music Center and does not affect the current protocols within the James H. Whiting Auditorium, the Capitol Theatre, or the Flint Repertory Theatre. 

These protocols will change as needed, depending on the progress of the pandemic. The Flint School of Performing Arts is committed to providing music, dance and theatre programs for all ages and skill levels in the safest environment possible.

The Year of Haydn: Covid Can't Stop the Music

This documentary film follows the journey of four young string musicians enrolled in the Flint School of Performing Arts, as they embrace a once in a lifetime opportunity during the ongoing worldwide COVID pandemic. Housebound due to quarantine restrictions, they are privately tutored virtually by the Grammy nominated DOVER QUARTET culminating in a combined concert piece premiered at the historic Capitol Theater in Flint, MI.

Funds for Student Needs

Little by little, a little means a lot. A $10.00 gift may seem small to you, but to our FSPA students and their families, your gift means something big.

It means you believe in them, their dreams, and their ability to take their study of music, dance and theater to the next level.
