Board and staff of the Nonprofit Loan Fund were delighted when our borrower True Concord Voices & Orchestra won a GRAMMY last month for a composition by Stephen Paulus performed on its first internationally released album “Far in the Heavens.” It was a fitting honor for this Tucson-based nonprofit with a global reputation. “We were thrilled to get a GRAMMY win for the late Stephen Paulus and his family,” said Eric Holtan, True Concord’s founder and music director, “and to bring more acclaim to Tucson as a cultural center for music and art.”
True Concord’s Reputation and Audiences Skyrocket
The GRAMMY comes on the heels of a New York debut at Lincoln Center, a #5 on the Billboard charts, and significant reviews in national classical music publications. The boost in recognition will help True Concord build local and national audiences, especially among young people.
“I believe in music’s power to enrich lives, even for just a moment, and to take listeners to a different place,” says Eric. He also wants to record and tour more.
