We are humbled to have received a 2017 Grace Note award from New Philharmonic Orchestra of Irving. This is the first time since the award's inception in 2009 that the New Philharmonic has awarded a second Grace Note award to an honoree. The 2017 award is for our "leadership in bringing chamber music to the Dallas area" through our Bancroft Family Concert series and our annual Basically Beethoven Festival. FACP was recognized with a Grace Note award in 2009 for helping build classical music audiences in the area.
As the New Philharmonic explained, "these awards are presented each February to one or more groups who are doing something very special for music and music lovers in this area, adding a 'grace note' -- an extra and much appreciated addition to the musical scene in north Texas." Other honorees this year were Chamber Music International, Dallas Chamber Music Society, and Chamber Music Society of Fort Worth.
Thank you, New Philharmonic Orchestra of Irving!
