“These National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grants underscore the resilience of our nation’s artists and arts organizations, will support efforts to provide access to the arts, and rebuild the creative economy,” said NEA Acting Chair Ann Eilers. “The supported projects demonstrate how the arts are a source of strength and well-being for communities and individuals, and can open doors to conversations that address complex issues of our time.”

Sarah Weber, Executive Director of ACSO, said, "We offer congratulations to our five orchestra members that received project grants from the NEA. We are grateful to the NEA for continuing to support the classical music sector. NEA funding makes it possible for orchestras to create innovative programs, commission new music, connect more deeply with their communities, and further their impact."
