A $25,000 grant from the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation.
The banks grants allowed the symphony to execute its first phase of renovations, which is equipment purchasing and getting the building up to code.
Brian Hinrichs the Executive Director of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra said "This has been so key for us being able to hit the ground running in the new space and it's a great vote of confidence for the work that we're doing and the idea of forming really a multi use arts center in Downtown Bangor."
They are now fund-raising for phase two and are hoping to add musical and production equipment to really make it a star venue. The community is invited to experience the showcase of the Bangor arts organizations on Friday October 6th from 5 -9 pm.
