Symphony receives $100,000 grant

The Lexington Symphony has received a $100,000 grant from the Cummings Foundation, which supports nonprofits serving Middlesex, Essex, and Suffolk counties. The symphony was selected from more than 430 applicants for the foundation’s “$100k for 100” program, which divides $10 million in grants among 100 area organizations. The Lexington Symphony is a regional ensemble of professional musicians that performs at Cary Hall six times each year, while also conducting outreach and educational programs, such as its Orchestrating Kids Through Classics series. The symphony will use the money to improve its organizational infrastructure, according to an announcement on its website, www.lexingtonsymphony.org.
