The Sangamon Valley Youth Symphony was chosen as the spring recipient of SC GIVES.
Springfield Clinic is donating items the group requested on their wish list:
- 20 music stands
- Concert bells
- Suspended Cymbal
- Crash Cymbals
- Cymbal stand/holder
The Sangamon Valley Youth Symphony was created by parents, music teachers and musicians to keep a student orchestra program alive after the Springfield area schools eliminated all orchestra classes in the 1970s. The group helps to enrich the community by providing quality orchestral experiences and musical education to our youth.
The Sangamon Valley Youth Symphony was selected from among nominations received since the SC GIVES program launched the new campaign on January 1, 2017.
