Symphony Volunteers Campaigning
To Meet $20,000 Concert Shortfall
Brunswick County symphony supporters arc
launching a "Save the Symphony" campaign this week
in an effort to raise $20,000 by April 30 and avoid can
cellation of spring concerts scheduled here by the North
The symphony is slated to present an evening con
cert May 10 at Hatch Auditorium and a concert for
school children on April 30.
Stcphanna Tewcy, president of the local chapter of
the North Carolina Symphony
Society, said the symphony has
been coming to Brunswick County
for the past 15 years "only because
of the extreme efforts of a very few
volunteers who sell tickets and so
"What folks don't seem to real
ize is that each time the symphony
comes to give an evening concert,
they give a concert for the children
as well," said Tewcy. "And al
though that concert is free to the children, it is not free
to Brunswick County."
Tewcy said county volunteers must raise a total of
S26.000 for the four appearances scheduled by the sym
phony this year.
Only about one-third of the cost of the concerts is
raised by tickct sales; donations make up the bulk. That
is the source of the shortfall.
"I'm hopeful that concertgoers past, present and fu
ture will realize how important it is to keep the concert
coming to Brunswick County," she said. "If everyone
attending the concerts would donate an additional S20,1
think we could get back into the black again."
In a recent letter to the local chaptcr. Symphony
Executive Director Banks Talley warned, "If this chal
lenge is not met by April 30, then the symphony man
agement must seriously consider cancelling your
evening concert for May 10 and your music education
concert for April 30."
If the funds are not raised, the shortfall may also
jeopardize the two concerts slated next year, the letter
continued. The society would be expected to raise funds
for those concerts plus any shortfall from this year prior
to the first concert.
"Save the Symphony" volunteers will hold their
first meeting Tuesday, April 6 at 6 p.m. at Blue Dolphin
Gallery on Beach Road, Southport. All interested per
sons arc urged to attend, she said, and to call her in ad
vance at 1-919-457-5656.
Contributions to "Save the Symphony" should be
made out to the North Carolina Symphony and mailed
to chaptcr treasurer Kay Brannon, P.O. Box 10151,
Southport, N.C. 28461.
