The So Percussion ensemble will be visiting UC Davis, thanks to the Mellon grant.
LThe Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts at UC Davis has received a $400,000 award from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that will support innovative performances in classical music, residencies by major American orchestras and festivals connected to academic programs.
“This generous grant supports our belief in the power and beauty of classical music to enrich lives,” said Don Roth, executive director of the Mondavi Center.
“It will give us the opportunity to deepen our work to engage audience members with classical music by supporting nontraditional and less formal concert formats, by collaborating with UC Davis artists and faculty to create exciting multifaceted music festivals, and by creating major artist residencies that bring community members and artists in closer contact.”
