The Bravo Vail Valley Music Festival was awarded $12,500 from the National Endowment for the Arts with a 2011 grant award: “Access to Artistic Excellence.”

The grant will support Bravo’s 2011 efforts to expand and diversify music and education programs including community outreach concerts, open rehearsals, public workshops, the Young Professionals-in-Residence, and the Music Matters education programs. This is Bravo’s eighth year as a recipient of an award from the federal agency.

“We are honored to receive this level of recognition and support,” said John Giovando, executive director of the Bravo Festival. “This grant is an investment in Bravo and the Vail Valley as the funds will support our mission to foster family and community unity through increasing awareness and appreciation for classical music and the arts.”

The National Endowment for the Arts, established in 1965, supports artistic excellence, creativity, and innovation for the benefit of individuals and communities. It is the largest annual funder of the arts in the United States.
