Standard Life has won the arts, business and sustainability category at the Arts and Business awards in recognition of the company’s partnership with Children’s Classic Concerts.
The concerts have been running for 13 years, introducing children to live orchestral music. Standard has sponsored the programme for the past nine years and pledged its support until 2010.
Community investment manager Karen Frost says: “Over the years, the numbers benefiting from Children’s Classic Concerts have inc-reased and the programme now enables over 17,000 people to attend classical music concerts and 2,700 children to take part in education events which introduce children to the instruments and format of a classical orchestral concert. We look forward to our continued involvement with the best-attended family concerts in Scotland.”
