The Albany Symphony Orchestra is getting
financial help to continue their work.
One $9,000 grant will help
expand the link-up concert they offer to 3rd through 5th graders.
They also got a 25-thousand dollar grant
to help with daily operations.
support is especially welcome because ticket sales, that's just a small part of
our budget and does not cover the complete cost of the concerts and being able
to expand link up, this gives us the opportunity to do that," said Lark
Ledbetter, Executive Director, Albany Symphony Orchestra.
The grants come from the Georgia Council of
the Arts, and the National Endowments for the Arts.
The grants will be applied
to next fiscal year's budget.
