North Valley Symphony Orchestra (NVSO) is pleased to announce it has received grants from the Arizona Commission on the Arts (ACA) and Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture (POAC), each awarding $5,000. These funds will support the operations of NVSO’s four orchestras, including the adult orchestra and three youth ensembles.

Both ACA and POAC award annual grants through a competitive application and review process. NVSO relies on grants, business sponsors and individual donors to continue bringing artistry, learning, and performance of exceptional orchestral music to the North Valley community.

“Both ACA and POAC recognize that NVSO provides unique opportunities for musicians and exceptional value to audiences in the North Valley community,” says Liz Galpin, NVSO’s President of the Board of Directors. “We are committed to continue cultivating the talent of our musicians, while also fostering music appreciation among members of the North Valley community by offering $5.00 tickets for all major concerts.”

“Our programs would not be possible without the generous support of ACA, POAC, business sponsors, and individual donors,” says Galpin.

Local residents, businesses and organizations can see how the ACA and POAC grants and individual donations are benefiting NVSO by attending their first concert of the 2017-18 season, October 14, 7:00 p.m. at North Canyon H.S. Performing Arts Center, 1700 E. Union Hills, Phoenix. For concert schedules, visit their website:
