FLINT, Mich. -- Flint-area musicians are serenading bus passengers and community members in an effort to increase arts awareness.

The Flint Journal reports a string trio from the Flint Symphony played classical music in the city bus station Wednesday afternoon. It's part of a program called Culture Shock that aims to broaden residents' artistic tastes.

The Flint nonprofit Communities First sponsors the program, which has also included performances during community events. Culture Shock took families from Flint's public housing program to the Flint Institute of Art on Saturday.

Bus passenger Martha Dellinger-Nass says live performances will click with people who have never been exposed to classical music and don't realize they like it. She says she took a later bus so she could enjoy the trio's performance.
