When it comes to nurturing and supporting a regional orchestra in your community, you realize that it truly does take a 'village,' or in this case, many villages! We are so very grateful to Heartland Farms for their sponsorship of our "Home for the Holidays" concerts in December with none other than our very own Danny Mitchell! This is Heartland Farms second season as a sponsor - thank you for your commitment to community! http://www.hfinc.biz/
