Tenaris is supporting Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA) through sponsorship of the organisation’s redevelopment of Aberdeen’s Music Hall, a category A-listed concert hall in the heart of the city, which originally opened its doors as the County Assembly Rooms in 1822.
Tenaris will donate $6,600 (£5k) to the transformation project, which represents the most comprehensive work carried out in the venue’s history. The redevelopment includes restoration and renovation work to modernise the 200-year old venue.
According to APA’s Corporate Sponsor & Major Donor Campaign Manager Debbie Mackenzie, “The transformation will allow us to pass the Music Hall on to the next generation, as a contemporary, vibrant, cultural hub for the whole community. We are very grateful to Tenaris for supporting our plans to deliver enhanced cultural experiences here in the North-east of Scotland.”
“We have been a part of the Aberdeen community for decades and are proud to contribute and support such an historic revitalisation project,” said Gary Thomson, Tenaris Managing Director, UK.
“Tenaris has long been a supporter of education, arts and cultural programs, worldwide, as these experiences extend learning opportunities and foster values important to the company – innovation, diversity, growth, and development.”
In 2017, Tenaris invested about $9.5 million USD in education and community-based programs.
Last year, Tenaris expanded its presence in Aberdeen with the opening of a service centre to complement its existing commercial and industrial facilities locally and in the North Sea region, where the company has been serving oil and gas customers since the 1970s.
