The Princeton Symphony Orchestra (PSO) is to receive a $10,000 Art Works grant from The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to help fund a community engagement project centered on Mango Suite, a new work by composer Derek Bermel, and its inspiration Sandra Cisneros and her short novel The House on Mango Street. Ms. Cisneros' book provides a window onto what it's like growing up amid two cultures.

Upon learning of the grant, PSO Executive Director Marc Uys said, "It's terrific to receive this recognition from the NEA which allows us to demonstrate how artistic mediums can combine to bring into focus important issues like cultural identity."
