League selects 22 orchestras for Getty Education and Community Investment Grants

Twenty-two orchestras from across the United States have been selected by the League of American Orchestras to receive Getty Education and Community Investment Grants for innovative educational, health and wellness, and artistic programs. The grants will fund long-term in-school and after-school music programs with social development components, as well as health and wellness programs for populations including hospital patients, people with developmental disabilities, homeless mothers, and the families and healthcare providers of these groups. A complete list and details of each grantee program can be found here. “We are grateful to the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation for continuing to support this critical program,” said League President and CEO Jesse Rosen. “Orchestras continue to expand their vital role in civic and community life, with musicians acting as ambassadors, advocates, and educators. The League is a catalyst in this work, as we share success stories and ideas with the entire orchestral field, helping orchestras deepen their relationship with their communities and develop diverse audiences.” A total of $425,000 was awarded for this year’s grants, the fourth year of the League’s $2 million re-granting program made possible by the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation.
