Californian orchestra receives record donation
The gift will be presented today at a ceremony at Copley Symphony Hall in downtown San Diego. Since the Jacobs' gift kicks off the Symphony's $200 million New World Endowment Campaign, the orchestra, led by outgoing artistic director Jung-Ho Pak, will play Dvorak's New World Symphony.

And since the orchestra's community outreach and education programmes are said to have significantly influenced the Jacobs' decision, 13 year-old Shannon Olson, winner of the outfit's Young Artists Competition, will play Chopin's Fantasia Impromptu.

'Joan and I have experienced so much enjoyment through the years from the San Diego Symphony, it was important for us to give something back,' said Irwin Jacobs. 'We want the New World Endowment campaign to provide the long-term resources and security to ensure that the San Diego Symphony is forever a world-class organisation.'

Asked how the money will be used, Symphony president and CEO Doug Gerhart answered, 'To reach the public by growing our classical offerings and, taking advantage of unprecedented opportunities in the master agreement we reached with our musicians in October, reaching as far into the community as possible.'

Chicago Symphony president Henry Fogel commented, 'This gift should help the Symphony build a strong, stable organisation, and make a major artistic contribution both to the San Diego community and to the entire field of American orchestras.'
