This season, as part of its Grow Up Great initiative in Cleveland, PNC is sponsoring the Musical Rainbows Series for preschoolers as well as a wide range of other activities and programs designed to give very young children "A Great Early Start in the Arts." PNC Musical Rainbow programs introduce very young children to the instruments of the orchestra, one at a time.
PNC Musical Rainbow Concerts are endowed by the Pysht Fund.
