This concert season recognizes the legendary developer of Apple Valley, Newton T. Bass and a multi-year pledge made by The Apple Valley Foundation to support the Victor Valley Community Concert Association.
With the support and encouragement of Mr. Bass, The Apple Valley Foundation was formed in 1953 for the purpose of building and forming a hospital in Apple Valley. Following the community's success and the opening of St. Mary Hospital, the foundation continued it's support of local schools, the arts and numerous community projects to improve the quality of life in Apple Valley and communities of the High Desert. Major projects include the stadium at Apple Valley High School and the county library in Apple Valley.
The Victor Valley Community Concert Association thanks Francis Bass, the widow of Newton T. Bass and President of The Apple Valley Foundation, for her visionary support of the performing arts that - together with your donations and subscriptions - allows us to present the best concert series in the High Desert for nearly five decades.
