FORT WORTH, Texas – The Flying Musicians Association (FMA) has been awarded a 2013 program Wolf Aviation Fund grant to assist in acknowledging and strengthening the bonds between aviation and music, in the FMA’s programs that enhance outreach and education.
“We are grateful for the Wolf Fund grant and believe that other industry leaders will see this as a positive step thus encouraging their own generous donations towards assisting FMA in our goals to inspire, educate, and encourage,” says John Zapp, FMA co-founder. “We will vigorously continue to seek additional funding from both the aviation and the music communities, to promote growth, both personal and industry wide.”
The grant encourages FMA to continue its outreach to youth of all ages along with its program of understanding, “Symphony in the Skies: a Correlation between Aviation and Music.”
“The Wolf Aviation Foundation is pleased to fund the Flying Musicians Association, one of the most promising institutions that truly innovates and produces worthy projects which advance general aviation,” added Rol Murrow, Wolf Aviation Fund Executive Director. “As we know, flying is not only about technical prowess but also the beauty and inspiration of flight. By combining the art of music with the art of flying the FMA celebrates the joy brought by both.”
