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 Carolina Symphony. 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 licit donations." "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.
