Dear Symphony friend,
Thank you for your enthusiasm and support which helps us in our efforts to provide world-class concerts, music education and community outreach events.
Your gifts help us make great impact on our community and for promising musicians like Caden Reed.
Caden Reed is an enthusiastic eight-year-old 3rd grader who attends Palm Beach Public Elementary School, where Palm Beach Symphony sends professional musicians to its strings program, as part of a year-long residency. Caden has been playing violin for two years, however, as is common in many schools, he has to share his instrument with other students. This limited Caden's practice time as he prepared for auditions with the Youth Orchestra of Palm Beach County.
Fortunately, Palm Beach Symphony had a donated 1/2 size violin on hand. Caden's teacher, Valentina Paolucci - winner of our first B-Major Award in 2018/19 - nominated him to receive a violin through our Instrument Donation Program. The violin was donated to Caden this summer prior to his Youth Orchestra auditions.
This gift would not have been possible without the support from people like you who believe in music and know how it can impact individual lives. As with Valentina, who has been accepted at the University of Miami on a full music scholarship, we will closely follow Caden's progress as an aspiring musician.
Gifts from generous donors like you allow us to donate more instruments to students like Caden, ensuring each child has his or her own instrument. They also help us expand programming (offering additional concerts and music offerings), host a variety of music education programs introducing children to classical music, and reach more individuals in Palm Beach County with our community outreach initiatives.
With your support through one of our new Annual Fund programs, you can help impact individuals like Caden who want to continue growing as musicians, whose lives have been inspired and motivated by classical music, or who simply find comfort with music through its therapeutic properties. Your support is critical to Palm Beach Symphony’s mission to engage, educate, and entertain the greater community of the Palm Beaches through live performances of inspiring orchestral music.
Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution before the year’s end to keep classical music alive in Palm Beach County for many more years to come. Together, we can make a big difference!
With deep gratitude,
