Couple gives m to DC orchestra

Board member Roger Sant has pledged $10 million to the National Symphony Orchestra, its largest-ever individual gift. It brings Sant’s total lifetime giving to more than $35 million.

Part of this funds the naming of the Music Director Chair for Roger Sant and Congresswoman Doris Matsui. Sant said: ‘Leaving these legacy gifts to the National Symphony Orchestra is an expression of our profound love for the NSO and its gifted musicians. My wife, Doris, and I are grateful to the creation of the Roger Sant and Congresswoman Doris Matsui Chair, dedicated to the NSO Music Director. Our hope is that this chair will amplify the NSO’s capacity to inspire and enrich our community through the transformative power of music.’
