Hultquist Foundation continues support of Chautauqua Music School Festival Orchestra

Earle Hultquist was a successful industrialist from Jamestown, New York. His children, Carl Hultquist and Cathy Hultquist-Hall, founded the Hultquist Foundation in his memory in 1965. The Hultquist Foundation provides around $750,000 every year to organizations in the greater Jamestown

The Chautauqua Music School Festival Orchestra has been a recipient of this charitable support every year for more than two decades. At 8:15 p.m. tonight in the Amphitheater, the MSFO will perform its final concert of the 2018 season thanks to the Hultquist Foundation’s generosity.

“The directors have always been very fond of the (MSFO) program,” said Steven Wright, president of the Hultquist Foundation. “We love the fact that it attracts talented young musicians to Chautauqua County every summer.”

The board of directors will be in attendance to witness and support the MSFO artists performing this evening following their season.

“We’re very pleased and proud to continue to be able to support the fine programs at Chautauqua,” Wright said.
