There is a 1:1 match requirement for this program. The matching funds must consist of at least 50% cash expense provided by the applicant; in-kind, non-monetary donations and volunteer hours may be counted up to 50% of the required match.
Eligible projects must:

“An imaginative arrangement breathes new life into “Corcovado.” Stan Kessler’s shimmering trumpet solo elevates “Dolphin Dance.” “Freedom Flight,” a sprightly original Burnett composition, features a sterling guitar solo from Charles Gatschet. Burnett soars throughout.”— PlasticSax.com
