Getty Grants, Round 4 (2015-2016)

For a fourth year, the League of American Orchestras awarded Getty Education and Community Investment Grants to orchestras across the United States. The Round 4 grants support 22 orchestras’ long-term in-school and after-school music programs with social development components, as well as orchestras’ health and wellness programs for populations including hospital patients, people with developmental disabilities, homeless mothers, and the families and healthcare providers of these groups.

For first-hand video accounts from grantee program stakeholders and others, visit the League’s online story bank. Community partners, parents, musicians, orchestra administrators, and students are spotlighted in an array of videos and articles showing the many ways in which orchestras serve communities.

The Getty Education and Community Investment Grants are made possible by a generous grant from the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation.
