Contribution from U.S. Bank
U.S. Bank makes Contribution to Symphony's Adventures in Music Program
U.S. Bank and AIM Personnel
The Port Angeles Symphony’s Adventures in Music school project has been given $3,000 by U.S. Bancorp Foundation as part of the company’s local contributions program.
U.S. Bancorp Foundation works with community partners who understand the needs of individuals, families and organizations, and match their resources with those community needs. Through their collaborations, families can find affordable places to call home, people can gain job skills, kids from diverse backgrounds can achieve in school, and the wealth of the arts can become more accessible to everyone.
Lisa Meyer, U.S. Bank Branch Manager in Port Angeles was instrumental in obtaining this contribution for the Port Angeles Symphony. Mark Wendeborn, Executive Director of the Port Angeles Symphony said “U.S. Bank has partnered with the orchestra for this important program for the children of Clallam County since 1998. This is a remarkable commitment to the communities they serve!”
U.S. Bancorp Foundation is partnering with the Port Angeles Symphony to provide an opportunity for all elementary students, grades K-5, in Clallam County, the opportunity to hear quality live performing arts programs during the school year. Supporting curriculum materials provided to teachers offer lesson plans and suggestions for integrating the arts into other curriculum areas. Students receive a handout following the performance to reinforce the concepts presented. The curriculum and performances used are written specifically to meet the needs of the students in our local school districts and to take advantage of local resources.
Adventures in Music is a collaborative project of the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra with five school districts in Clallam County. The five districts involved are Cape Flattery, Crescent, Quillayute, Port Angeles, and Sequim. Additionally, programs are offered to Queen of Angels parochial school, Olympic Christian School and the Home-schooling organizations in Clallam County. It is one of the Orchestra’s great pleasures to be able, through this program, to provide free admissions to the families of every elementary child to all of the five Saturday morning concerts of the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra.
