(WBNG) -- The Binghamton Youth Symphony is this week's winner of the $2,000 grant from Upstate Shredding.
The Binghamton Youth Symphony is one of the oldest continuous running youth programs in the country with around 120 students involved in two orchestras.
The Binghamton Youth Symphony orchestra conductor, Barry Peters, accepted the check on their behalf and says that the grant will go toward their introduction to orchestra project in March where they invite young students to attend.
The Symphony will perform on March 10, 2020 at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. at the Anderson Center on the Binghamton University campus. This performance is attended each year by almost 2,000 students and Peters says that this is probably the first time most of them have heard a live orchestra.
