Aegis named Nashville Symphony title sponsor

Aegis Sciences Corp. has agreed to extend its Nashville Symphony Classical Series title sponsorship — a $300,000 financial commitment it recently made — through the 2015-16 calendar year.

“Initially, Aegis Sciences Corporation made a one year commitment as sponsor of the series, but they generously extended that commitment for an additional two years, through the 2015/16 Season,” Alan Valentine, Nashville Symphony CEO and president, said in a statement released Thursday.

The classical series of concerts will be renamed the Aegis Sciences Classical Series effective immediately, the statement reads.

Aegis Sciences CEO and founder David L. Black says, “Aegis greatly respects the difference the Nashville Symphony makes to the Middle Tennessee quality of life.  We are committed to supporting the symphony talent and management, and are very proud of the partnership we have forged with this great Tennessee treasure.  We have extended our financial commitment to demonstrate our confidence in their ability to deal with today’s challenges and our confidence in their future contributions to our community.”

Earlier this month, Bank of America served notice of foreclosure on the nonprofit, stating it plans to auction off the Schermerhorn Symphony Center on June 28. Click here for that story published by The City Paper.
