SUMMIT, New Jersey – The Discovery Orchestra recently received a $3,000 grant from the Investors Foundation. The grant will help further the Orchestra’s mission of teaching music listening skills by providing interactive and accessible programs for audiences in North Central New Jersey and beyond.

The Orchestra applied for the grant from the Investors Foundation, which supports nonprofit organizations that enrich the diverse communities served by Investors Bank. 

“The Orchestra’s interactive program formats give patrons opportunities to actively listen to classical music, rather than simply hear it. I am so pleased that these types of meaningful listening experiences are accessible to audiences both locally in New Jersey and worldwide through our expanding media offerings,” said Virginia Johnston, Executive Director of the Orchestra. “We are thrilled to have community partners like the Investors Foundation who continue to support our mission and work.”

The Investors Foundation grant has helped to underwrite the Orchestra’s 2019-20 live and media programs for the public, which included an Intimate Afternoon Recital, outreach programs for music student groups in Newark, Paterson and Trenton, and a future live radio broadcast of a Discovery Concert on WWFM, The Classical Network. Additionally, the grant will support the national distribution of the Orchestra’s fifth educational show for public television, Discover The Firebird.
