Pacific Symphony Receives Grant from New California Arts Fund, 'Builds Bridges' with Chinese-Americans
by BWW News Desk - Nov 12, 2015

Orange County, Calif.—Nov. 11, 2015—Pacific Symphony has been ahead of the multicultural curve for years. Through many different vehicles—The American Composers Festivals, Music Unwound, guest performers, commissioned works—the Symphony is at the center of a seismic shift regarding what people listen to and who is listening. Like orchestras throughout the country, the Symphony sees cross-cultural dialog as a critical, essential part of how it serves its various communities. These bridge-building efforts have been in place at least since 2004's “Tradewinds from China” American Composers Festival. Now, however, these efforts have intensified. As a recipient of a $1.6 million New California Arts Fund grant from The James Irvine Foundation, specifically for expanding and diversifying its core listenership, the Symphony has been working behind the scenes to build stronger links with Orange County's Chinese and Chinese-American communities. Some (but not all) of these efforts have been directed at the guest artists and repertoire being brought to the stage. (more...)
