Last fall, we were honored to be awarded a Project Support Grant from ARTSFAIRFAX, the county’s officially designated arts agency. This March 23rd concert is a culmination of the Faculty Chamber Ensemble Music Enrichment Project, which included the two faculty chamber groups visiting several local schools in Fairfax County to enrich the student experience through chamber music, interactive performance, and teaching.
The mission of ARTSFAIRFAX is to be “the voice of the arts, dedicated to fostering dynamic and diverse local arts, ensuring that arts thrive by providing vision, leadership, capacity building services, advocacy, funding, education, and information.”
The Academy would like to express our deep appreciation for the support received from ARTSFAIRFAX for this project.
