Symphony to receive $1 million from Chevron

The San Francisco Symphony will receive $1 million from Chevron Corp. during the next five years, officials with the symphony have announced.

“The long-standing partnership between Chevron and the San Francisco Symphony is a model of what can occur when corporations and arts organizations collaborate, and we are proud to be part of a relationship that is productive and engaging in every sense,'' San Francisco Symphony President John Goldman said in a prepared statement.

According to the symphony, the money will support key symphony programs that include the Great Performers' Series, which featurestop international orchestras and soloists in performance at Davies Symphony Hall, and the annual concert series Summer in the City.

The 80-year partnership between the symphony and Chevron began in 1926 when Standard Oil Company, which Chevron budded out of, donated $10,000 to the then 15-year-old symphony.
