Music Center of the Northwest (MCNW) status
The new director of MCNW will come to the Rain City Symphony's first rehearsal and introduce himself. There are four things we need to discuss with the Center, Is it possible to improve the sound quality of the large rehearsal room, to get better lighting, to sound proof between the floors, and to move one of the pianos out of the rehearsal area.

Rain City Symphony member donations are on target for this year. Bruce will address the members at the first meeting encouraging them to donate additional money.

Grant Status
The King County 4Culture was completed. The City of Seattle Arts and Culture grant is being worked on.

Sectional Status
All the sectionals are set. The cello section will be meeting at the Wedgwood Community Church. The fee to rent the space is $50.

Other Items
The travel time to Providence Mount St. Vincent's is beginning to be too long for members. We might need to look for a site in the north end for the fall dress rehearsal concert.

The fall benefit concert raised approximately $2,169 for the University homeless population.
