The Symphony member's have continued to donate funds in addition to their membership fee. This has helped keep the Symphony's finances on track for the fiscal year. The Fall Benefit Concert for the United Churches Emergency Fund raised $2,000.

Grant Status
The reports to receive the grant money from the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture program have been submitted. The King County 4Culture application has also been submitted.

Music Status
The music for the Winter Quarter in available to print from the Rain City Symphony's website. The Walton score doesn't match all the instrumental parts, which may prove a little challenging.

Publicity Status
For the Fall concert the reader board placed at the entrance to the theater. It looked very professional and welcoming. There were enough programs for all the attendees.

Membership Status
There were 75 symphony members Fall quarter.

Venue Status
The preview concert at the Norse Home is questionable. They have not responded to Kim's inquires about letting us play. We need a place to perform the preview Winter Concert.
