Endowed Chair Given
Performing Arts to receive funding for endowed chair
York College President Steve Eckman announced Tuesday that the College is receiving a gift to fund an endowed chair in the performing arts. This anonymous gift totaling more than $1million will be given over the next five years to underwrite a faculty salary for the performing arts. “We are overwhelmed by the generosity of this donor,” said Eckman, “and are so grateful for the confidence expressed in the future of York College by a gift of this magnitude."
York College has long been recognized for the excellence of its performing arts. The York College Concert Choir has been invited to perform at Lincoln Center in New York City in June. Relatedly, the York College drama department is widely known in the region for its annual children's theater performances, currently reaching over 20 schools and programs.
