Fort Wayne Philharmonic’s “Random Acts of Music”

Posted on: January 7, 2010

Wednesday’s (1/6) Journal Gazette (Fort Wayne, Indiana) reports, “The Fort Wayne Philharmonic on Wednesday announced a ‘Random Acts of Music’ initiative designed to increase community awareness of classical music. Under the initiative, funded by the W. Gene Marcus Trust, various Philharmonic ensembles will perform at local businesses, sporting events, outdoor venues or other places around Allen County throughout the season, the Philharmonic said in a statement. On Jan. 14, the plan kicks off with ‘A Day of Music,’ [with] four ensembles performing in seven different locations during lunch hours, the statement said. ‘We are very excited about this new program to help further connect The Phil with our community,’ said J.L. Nave III, the Philharmonic’s president and CEO, in the statement. ‘Many people enjoy hearing our musicians in the concert hall, but live music can and should be a special highlight to someone’s day even where they least expect it.’ Community partners include the Downtown Improvement District, Arts United, the Fort Wayne mayor’s office and the Allen County Commissioners, the statement said.”
