PROVIDENCE – Partridge Snow & Hahn LLP in February donated 25 tickets to the New Bedford Symphony Youth Orchestra to attend the Rhode Island Philharmonic Rush Hour Concert as part of the firm’s 25/25 initiative being celebrated during its 25th anniversary to thank community members who have supported the company through the years.
It was a pleasure to see how much the students enjoyed attending the concert,” said managing partner David Gilden in a statement.
The Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra & Music School comprises 73 professional musicians in its orchestra and is currently the only comprehensive nonprofit community music school in Rhode Island.
The New Bedford Symphony Youth Orchestras have since 2008 worked to bring together talented musicians from across Southeastern Massachusetts to participate in educational and artistic experiences in a full orchestra section. Membership is open to students from grade school through age 21. Musicians must be members in good standing in their school instrumental music programs.
