The South Texas College Music Department receives a $60,000 grant from the Rea Charitable Trust Foundation.

The grant will help the music department expand the existing South Texas College band program with funds to purchase high-quality instruments for use in the Symphonic Band, as well as in the Brass Ensemble, Woodwind Ensemble, and applied music lessons. 

Dr. Virginia Champion, Director of Grant Development, Management, and Compliance expressed her gratitude for the grant. 

“This is the second grant that South Texas College has been awarded from the Wells Fargo Rea Charitable Trust Foundation, and we are very pleased with their commitment to support the music department with this $60,000 grant, which is double the size of the initial grant we received,” said Dr. Champion.

South Texas College students who are music majors will utilize the new instruments purchased through the grant to provide two concerts each semester. 

The Rea Charitable Trust Foundation was created in 2009 with its primary purpose being “promotion of the arts.”
