Symphony Receives State Arts Council Grant


The California Arts Council has announced that the Susanville Symphony Society is a recipient one of the agency’s Creating Public Value grants. The $8,000 award will be used to expand the Susanville Symphony’s Academy of Music and other symphony programs.

The Creating Public Value Program seeks to promote the positive impact of the arts in the lives of all Californians by supporting small arts organizations in rural and underserved communities in which geography, economic conditions, ethnic background, or disability hinder access to the arts. A total of $773,163 of funds will be awarded.

“These organizations provide outstanding opportunities in the arts for diverse groups of Californians” said Marilyn Nielsen, Interim Director of the California Arts Council. “We’re pleased to have them represent the Creating Public Value program by bringing a wide variety of arts experiences to communities across California.”

Funding for this program comes in part from the sale of Arts License Plates, a specialty plate designed by renowned California artist Wayne Thiebaud with a sunset and palm tree motif.
