Santa Maria Philharmonic receives hefty donation

BY JOE PAYNE

The Santa Maria Philharmonic Society has received an anonymous bequest to the society to the tune of $10,000, putting the nonprofit just $3,000 shy of reaching “Phase I” of its current fundraising drive.

Donated by an anonymous, yet long-time supporter of the Philharmonic, the donation is the second large sum of money to be donated to the society after it had to cancel its season subscription concert season due to lack of funds for full-scale orchestral performances. The completion of Phase I will guarantee an upcoming season of two concerts and covering all other expenses. Following Phase I, Phase II will build a fund for a complete concert season by the 2014-15 season.

The society is still dedicated to its education and outreach programs for area youth including the Music Van and “Peter and the Wolf” concerts for local 3rd and 4th graders. More information is available at 925-0412.
