Chamber receives $500,000 grant
Southwest Chamber Music has received a grant totaling $500,000 to be paid over the next 10 years from the Schoenberg Family Charitable Fund.Half a million dollars is a lot of money and quite a long term commitment for a chamber music group - especially one that does so much modern repertoire. I hope they use it to good effect.
The grant, the largest in the Pasadena group's history, will be used to pay for future recordings. Southwest received classical album Grammy Awards in 2003 and 2004. (Chris Pasles)
Congratulations to SCMS. Here's their website.
Okay, by a show of hands, how many of you knew there was such a thing as "The Schoenberg Family Charitable Fund"? (Not me.)
