PORTLAND SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA RECEIVES GRANTS FROM MAINE ARTS COMMISSION AND TARGET


PORTLAND, Maine The Portland Symphony Orchestra (PSO) recently received two grants totaling $13,000 for support of its education programs during the 2008-2009 season.


The Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment of the Arts, has committed $10,000 in support of PSO's KinderKonzerts. These programs explore the different families of orchestral instruments while introducing children ages 3-7 to live symphonic music through fun and interactive programs with PSO musicians.


Additionally, Target has committed $3,000 for general support of PSO's music education programs.


The PSO is committed to offering a variety of education programs designed to instruct, enrich and inspire audiences of all ages. The PSO helps young people discover music as a pathway to creativity, self-discovery and self-expression, and fosters an important relationship to the traditions of live music performance.
