Meals for Musicians


Mr. David Purvis and his family have been a part of our Symphony Family for many years, most notably contributing to our Meals for Musicians program on an annual basis. Mr. David's dedication and generosity toward our organization has made long rehearsals and late-night performance preparation easier and so much more enjoyable on a full stomach! 

Mr. David loved Meridian and anything that made Meridian a better place for everyone. That's why he believed in the Meridian Symphony — he knew it made Meridian better for everyone. In honor of that belief, we have named our Meals for Musicians program for his incredible generosity. The David Purvis Meals for Musicians program will help ensure incredible local, regional, and international musicians continue to present world-class performances and educational opportunities in Meridian for many years to come.
