Annapolis Symphony receives grant to expand education programs

Posted on: November 30, 2011

The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra in Maryland has received a $17,500 grant from the Paul M. Angell Family Foundation, which will allow it to expand two of its education programs during the next year. Among the educational programs slated for expansion is the Music Van program for Anne Arundel County third-graders, which introduces students to the instrument families and gives them the opportunity to meet musicians who play those instruments; that program will expand from five schools to up to fifteen schools in spring 2012. Also slated for expansion is the ASO’s Adopt-a-School partnership at Annapolis Elementary School and Annapolis Middle School, during which professional musicians work directly with students; the grant will allow the ASO to increase the number of school visits. Paul M. Angell Family Foundation Performing Arts grants focus on classical music and theater in the Chicago and Mid-Atlantic areas.
