About the Holesovsky Musician’s Fund
The Holesovsky Musician’s Fund was established in honor of founding member and long-time Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia cellist and personnel manager, Jimmy Holesovsky. This fund was created as a way to recognize Jimmy’s unwavering commitment to his colleagues and the well-being of the Chamber Orchestra. All donations to the Holesovsky Musician’s Fund will go directly toward the payment of Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia and Philadelphia-area musician fees for performances and special projects each season.
