History Logs

Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Poway

Total Budget: $3,000

Area of Focus: Basic education and literacy

Activity Type: Education: General

Summary: Funding students to play in the orchestra

The Poway Symphony Orchestra Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to proving great music in public concerts at our primary hall, the Poway Center for the Performing Arts. Our semi-professional orchestra plays three high-level concerts per year and plans to expand our offering whenever possible.

Educational Outreach Fund: The Orchestra is already a "class" in the Poway Unified School District ("PUSD") Adult School. Funding will provide a) tuition-offset for talented advanced student musicians in the PUSD to have the opportunity of playing with the Orchestra, and b) planning for future school event concerts for students. Our ultimate objective will be to provide PSO concerts specifically for PUSD students within the School District's purview.

Player Development Fund: Payment to approximately 20 additional paid musicians to strengthen the string sections and to ensure the participation of other musicians essential for the performance of full-scale symphonic works.
