The money is earmarked for The Future is Hear campaign, an initiative run by the Symphony to support the construction of The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park, alongside other artistic and community endeavours.

Including Sycuan’s donation, the campaign has thus far raised $123.5m of its $125m goal. The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park, meanwhile, is an outdoor waterfront venue at San Diego’s Embarcadero Marina developed and managed by the Symphony.

In recognition of Sycuan’s donation, a designated area at The Rady Shell has been named in the tribe’s honour, to be known from here on out as the Sycuan Community Plaza.

Cody Martinez, Chairman of the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation, commented: “We are honoured to present this donation to the San Diego Symphony in support of their many local artistic community programmes.

“Through the Kumeyaay spirit of giving, it is very important for us to invest in all aspects of our community, especially arts and culture.

“We are very proud of our longstanding partnership with the Symphony and look forward to being a part of the different musical events and experiences that they continue to bring to life for the San Diego community.”

San Diego Symphony CEO Martha Gilmer thanked Sycuan for its donation, saying: “We are honoured to have this extraordinary gift from Sycuan to support The Future is Hear campaign and our community programming.

“From their early generosity towards our former ‘Bayside Summer Nights’ outdoor concert series to the newest partnership that will benefit our community programmes, they have always been a vital partner for this orchestra.”
