Colorado Springs Philharmonic received a $90,000 grant from the Mary K. Chapman Foundation that will be spent during a three-year period starting with this concert season.
The grant continues the foundation’s tradition of giving to community, civic and human services programs in Colorado and Oklahoma. Founded in 2002, the foundation was created to continue the philanthropic work of Mary Chapman.
“It is a privilege for the Philharmonic to serve the people of Colorado Springs, and we see this as a major endorsement of that work,” said Nathan Newbrough. “It is inspiring to see the trustees’ passion for creating great community, and we’re more than grateful for their trust in our work.”
The award will support the Philharmonic Pops series and will allow the group to offer premium orchestral music. The 2012-2013 season will feature six concerts, highlighting the music of Led Zeppelin, Disney, Casablanca, John Williams, Broadway and more.
