The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded the Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State a $400,000 grant to support the continuation of the Classical Music Project through June 2017.

The goals of the Classical Music Project -- entering its fourth season -- are to raise the profile of Center for the Performing Arts classical music presentations and to engage Penn State students, faculty and the community with classical music programs. The aim is to provide opportunities for students to gain an understanding and appreciation of classical music that will last throughout their lives.

“We are extremely grateful to The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for their continuing support,” said George Trudeau, director of the Center for the Performing Arts. “We look forward to engaging students and the community with the multidimensional Classical Music Project artists and programs we’ve envisioned for the coming three years.”
