Each season benefits the local community not only through musical offerings but by sponsoring local charities, promoting awareness and raising monetary gifts. The 2012-13 Season will donate a portion of the proceeds from each event toward Sound Experiences, an El Sistema inspired program at Richmond Boys and Girls Clubs that teaches students to use music to engage in their communities, and the Grace Baptist Church Music Ministry.
