The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians donated another $70,000 to the San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra in California.

The money will be used to fund two concerts for the 2015-2016 season. “Home for the Holidays" will be performed on December 12 while “Echoes of America" will run February 5-6, 2016.

“They have always been the first to step forward and support programs that benefit the arts and we are so blessed to have them in our community,” symphony board president Judith Valles told The San Bernardino Sun of the tribe's contribution.

The tribe made a similar donation of $60,000 last year.
