Donation for Downey Symphony Orchestra

DOWNEY - Downey Symphony Orchestra president Larry Lewis, right, receives a $17,000 donation from Jerry Wetzstein, Downey Kiwanis Foundation board chairman, in the presence of DUSD superintendent Dr. Wendy Doty, to cover the cost of Wednesday's symphony concert in which about 1,600 5th graders from DUSD and the city's private schools attended. The students' annual field trip is part of the Music in the Schools program sponsored by the Downey Symphony Guild designed to expose the children to an early familiarization with the delights of classical music.********** Published: March 27, 2009 - Volume 7 - Issue 49
