Lancaster Graphics & Photography.The Multicultural Awareness Council (MAC) of the Cincinnati Symphony Volunteer Association established the Norman E. Johns Chair of the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra in 1995. Honoring Mr. Johns’ decades of service as a cellist for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the community, the award is given annually to support African-American, Latino and Native American students in their pursuit of music and covers the cost of tuition in the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestras program.

Looking forward to Mr. Johns’ 41st year of service and beyond, MAC has set a fundraising goal of $40,000 to endow the Norman E. Johns Chair Award. This endowment will ensure future students’ ability to pursue their dreams to perform classical music, starting with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
