Symphony receives grant for children's concerts
Submitted By Sue Rose
The Fremont Symphony Orchestra announced a partnership with Target to bring imaginative and enriching musical experiences to children. Grant funds will support the orchestra's highly regarded 37th free annual children's concerts March 22 - 24. Three thousand elementary school students from local school districts participate in the educational and engaging concerts as a weekday field trip.
Fremont Symphony Music Director David Sloss commended Target stating, "This Arts and Culture in the schools grant makes it possible for the orchestra to deliver free music education and free children's concerts to students at a time when school arts budget are being cut."
The Fremont Symphony Children's Concerts are aimed at grades 4 through 6. To make a reservation for your class, contact Symphony Manager, Susan Rose at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (510) 371-4860.
