The JDCRO is proud to be a recipient of the competitive Community Arts Development grant provided by the Maryland State Arts Council and the Carroll County Arts Council. The grant program is designed to “help strengthen local arts organizations and enhance cultural opportunities” for residents. The funds received will be used by the orchestra’s Sound & Tech Crew to purchase storage cases for the risers used during performances.
This is the 3rd year that the JDCRO has received this grant. The Carroll County Arts Council said in a letter to the orchestra, “We are getting more and more applicants each year, and the field is becoming quite competitive, so you should be very proud of this award.” See the related article in the Advocate online or look on page 8 of this week’s print Advocate of Eldersburg & Sykesville newspaper.
