“Ebby Halliday, Realtors has long been a supporter of the arts and children’s programs in North Texas so when the opportunity presented itself to be the PSO’s EncoreYouth Title Sponsor it was an obvious fit for us as a company,” says President & CEO Mary Frances Burleson. “One of our founding principles is service to the community. We couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity to sponsor the Plano Symphony’s EncoreYouth program and look forward to supporting this exceptional Collin County institution through its 2016-17 season.”
Part of the PSO’s mission is to inspire, educate, entertain and involve children and youth in the enjoyment of great music. To fulfill this mission, the orchestra’s EncoreYouth program focuses on four primary initiatives: the School Concert Education Program, Young Artists Competition, Instrument Petting Zoo and the Family Symphony Sundays Series.
