Sound Community Bank recently awarded a $4,000 grant to Adventures in Music (AIM), the Port Angeles Symphony program sending a variety of musicians out to schools across the North Olympic Peninsula.

Students in Sequim, in Forks, Chimacum, Sequim, Joyce, Clallam Bay and Quilcene get to see live performances of folk, pop, classical and jazz when Adventures in Music artists visit their classrooms.

The musicians have included members of the Port Angeles Symphony Orchestra, as well as singers Amanda Bacon of Sequim and Jessie Lee of Port Angeles, and percussionist Angie Tabor of Port Townsend. Al Harris, also a local musician and educator, schedules the concerts and provides accompanying curricular materials for teachers.

The program operates solely on support such as that from Sound Community Bank, said Jonathan Pasternack, the Port Angeles Symphony’s conductor and music director.

For more about Adventures in Music and the Symphony, contact Pasternack at 360-457-5579 or PASymphony@olypen.com.
