Steel City Strings Need Your Help.
In May we launched a $5,000 fundraising campaign to help our organisation and musicians through the COVID-19 pandemic. Our fundraising efforts were matched dollar-for-dollar for donations totalling up to $5,000 thanks to Creative Partnerships Australia and the Australian Cultural Fund.
‘We have been hit really hard by this unforeseen health crisis. Last year, 50% of our revenue was raised through concert ticket sales alone. Many of our musicians have lost all of their engagements for the foreseeable future.’
Kyle Little, Artistic Director.
All funds raised through May-July 2020 will support Steel City String’s #IsolationStrings project – an online concert to be broadcast in July. It will provide employment for SCS musicians and a local production company who will facilitate the technical requirements for online performance.
‘It’s important that Steel City Strings plays its part in the battle to keep the music going in combatting the real issues that arise for people in isolation, particularly with regards to their mental health.’
Yve Repin OAM, Manager.
Tax-deductible donations are still being received through our website here. Thank you for your support and generosity through this difficult period.
