Story of Fund
The Nittany Valley Symphony established this endowment fund
in 2005 to provide ongoing support for their world-class productions and
programming. In addition to monthly
musical productions, the symphony provides youth outreach programs such as the
Annual Ann Keller Young Soloist Competition, Youth Flute Choir, and the State
College Concert Percussion Academy. For
over 45 years, the Nittany Valley Symphony has produced concerts for the enjoyment
of the entire community.
How Does it Help?
With Centre Foundation, our endowment is like an entire symphony, not just the presto.
- Nittany Valley Symphony
This fund provides support for the
operations of the Nittany Valley Symphony. Since 1967 the Nittany Valley
Symphony has been part of our community, giving opportunity for local musicians
to perform music for audiences to hear and enjoy. At the heart of the symphony
is a group of dedicated musicians who are from the community. They are our
friends and neighbors - homemakers, business operators, physicians, professors,
students, retirees, and many others whose interest in live music brought them
together into a unique organization. What they have in common is the love of
Culture, Community & the Arts
