The Choir is very privileged to have received a grant from Warringah Council to assist in defraying the expenses of the August concert “Renaissance to Rutter”. In common with most arts organisations, we cannot cover all our expenses from ticket revenue alone. In fact, a full house just about pays for the orchestra, leaving Chapel hire, soloists and conductors fees, music hire, royalties and much more to be found from elsewhere.
There was a modest ceremony on July 30th at the Council Offices where the grants were handed out. It was interesting to learn that Warringah has doubled the community grants budget over the past few years from $100,000 to $214,000.
“Thank you” again to Warringah Council for including the Choir in this year’s awards.
