Key Private Bank helps underwrite Friday’s Evancho performance

Key Private Bank helped underwrite An Evening with Jackie Evancho Friday in the Amphitheater.

This sponsorship is an extension of the already existing partnership between Key Private Bank and the Chautauqua Foundation. Key Private Bank, serving as the wealth management arm of KeyCorp, also manages the Foundation’s Pooled Life Income Funds.

“I am absolutely delighted in Key Private Bank’s investment in helping to support the many cultural, artistic and educational programs Chautauqua Institution offers our region,” said Tina Downey, director of the Chautauqua Fund.

Elizabeth Vealey, senior vice president and marketing manager for Western New York Key Private Bank, said that Key Private Bank was proud to sponsor Evancho’s program at Chautauqua.

“The Institution is an important part of the fabric of the Western New York community,” Vealey said. “We enjoy our partnership with the Institution and want to help with building a strong foundation and a successful future.”

Evancho appeared on the television show “America’s Got Talent” when she was 10 years old, and has since released five albums, one of which went platinum. She has made two solo PBS specials for the TV series “Great Performances,” and appeared in the 2013 Robert Redford film “The Company You Keep.” She became the youngest person ever to perform a solo concert at Lincoln Center, and was accompanied on the Amp stage Friday night by the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra.
