The Colorado Symphony Orchestra has announced a new partnership with Lockheed Martin Space Systems, which will support expansion of orchestra’s youth Music Exposure Programs during the 2009-10 season. Lockheed will fund development of enhanced math and science curriculum materials for the CSO’s in-school, standards-based programming. The orchestra will also launch a new scholarship assistance program for schools with a high percentage of disadvantaged students in attendance. “Lockheed Martin is committed to science, technology, engineering, and math education and is excited to announce a unique education partnership with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra,” said Jim Crocker, Lockheed Martin’s vice president and general manager, Sensing & Exploration Systems, and the company’s site executive for the Denver region.” The CSO’s Music Exposure Programs serve 8,000 children and teachers each season throughout the Colorado Front Range. The headquarters for Lockheed Martin’s Space Systems division is located in Denver.
