Symphony NH Endowment Receives $10,000 Donation
NASHUA, NH – Symphony NH announces a generous donation to their education endowment fund from an anonymous donor, which will help to preserve the legacy of their programs in the Nashua schools and greater Nashua and New Hampshire community.
Symphony NH is a leader in music education programming and has a long history with the Nashua School District, working with teachers to create programs for their students, including an annual free orchestra concert for all of the district’s third graders. Symphony NH has performed similar programs in the Manchester, Concord, Bow, and Upper Valley school districts in addition to bringing orchestra musicians to schools to work directly with students.
Symphony NH’s community programs range from their free InTown concert series to a free community lecture series at Temple Beth Abraham in Nashua to classes at the Rivier Institute for Senior Education (RISE). Symphony NH believes that anyone should be able to attend their concerts, with a Community Ticket Program that makes attending concerts possible for all. Symphony NH provides free and discounted tickets to community organizations, from libraries, to music schools, to non-profits at no cost to the participating organization.
Since joining the organization in 2016, Executive Director Marc Thayer has made expanding these programs a main focus, saying, “The Symphony’s Education and Community Programs are a large priority for all of us. We plan to expand our work with the schools in order to support arts education in our region, which wouldn’t be possible without our generous donors.”
Symphony NH’s mission is to inspire and enlighten through exceptional live music, with music education and community programming at the core of their pursuit.
These programs are made possible by individual donations and grant funding. If you would like to make a tax-deductible contribution to Symphony NH during this season of giving, please contact their office at (603) 595-9156 or give online at https://www.symphonynh.org/donate. Your donation will help further ensure the legacy of Symphony NH in your community.
