Winston-Salem Symphony helps victims of domestic violence

Posted on: March 13, 2009

For its three “World Class Conductor, World Class Music” concerts guest conducted by JoAnn Falletta in March, North Carolina’s Winston-Salem Symphony partnered with Family Services, Inc., to help women and children who are victims of domestic violence. Used cell phones that were donated by concertgoers on March 6, 8, and 10 will be refurbished and distributed to domestic-abuse victims to ensure that they have access to emergency services. At the concerts, the orchestra also accepted books for children, teens, and adults for families currently residing in shelters run by Family Services. “We are excited about our partnership with the Winston-Salem Symphony,” said Al Renna, CEO of Family Services, Inc. “The Winston-Salem Symphony has an impressive history in our community and we are honored to partner with them for their March concerts. The arts play an integral role in building ‘strong families in healthy communities,’ which is Family Services, Inc.’s vision.”
