A standing ovation for symphony sponsors

On March 31 the Juneau Symphony performed their fourth concert of the

2011-12 season and on April 1 took the concert on tour to Sitka. They

performed Brahms’ first Symphony, Danzon No. 2 by Arturo Marquez and

Grondahl’s Concerto for Trombone and Orchestra with guest soloist George

Jones from Sitka High School. The concerts and tour were a wonderful

success for the capital city orchestra and they wish to extend a

heartfelt thank you to the many business sponsors who make the Symphony

season possible.

Business donations make up 15 percent of the Symphony’s income and are a vital

part of the budget. The Symphony would especially like to recognize

their larger business sponsorships: Alaska Airlines; Alaska Pacific Bank;

Allen Marine; Alaska USA Federal Credit Union; Alaska Broadcast

Communications; BP; Chan’s Thai Kitchen; ConocoPhillips; Elgee, Rehfeld

and Mertz; ExxonMobil; Greens Creek Mining; Holland America; Juneau

Brass and Winds; Juneau Emergency Medical Associates; the Juneau Empire,

Resource Data, Inc.; Simpson, Tillinghast, Sorensen & Sheehan, P.C. and

Wells Fargo Bank.

The Juneau Symphony has just begun a special fundraising campaign for

their upcoming 50th Anniversary season in 2012-13 and has received very

positive feedback from our sponsors. We greatly appreciate the continued

support of our local business community and wish to recognize their

contributions to the thriving arts and culture scene in our capital city.
