The five-year gift consists of $5 million for the National Symphony Orchestra in celebration of the arrival of Music Director Christoph Eschenbach, as well as $2.5 million for other artistic programming, which will be used to fund a significant production each season at the Kennedy Center called The Rubenstein Program.

The gift also provides $200,000 annually to support major Kennedy Center events such as the Kennedy Center Spring Gala, the NSO Season Opening Ball, the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor and the Kennedy Center Honors.

An additional $1.5 million will be set aside for Teaching, Learning and Partnerships -- an arts education program for students grades K-12 that brings the arts into classrooms around the United States, the center said.
