The Performing Arts Series at Jamestown College has been awarded a $2,000 Presenter Support Grant by the North Dakota Council on the Arts in support of efforts to provide quality arts programming in the community.
“The Performing Arts Committee is so pleased to have received this support from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, an organization that does so many great things for the state,” says Rick Walentine, Performing Arts Series Director. “It will go a long way in helping us meet our goals as we strive to maintain a balanced budget and make these artists available to the community.”
The 2012-13 Performing Arts Series welcomed world-renowned flutist and journalist Eugenia Zukerman in November and has two upcoming performances: the Russell Peterson Jazz Quartet on Feb. 22 and the Sonic Escape Instrumental Ensemble (violin, cello, flute) on March 23. Tickets will be available through the Jamestown College Box Office.
The Performing Arts Series was among 11 recipients of Presenter Support funding. This grant program is designed to benefit nonprofit organizations that are not eligible for other grant programs through the North Dakota Council on the Arts. It offers financial support for arts events and programming and supports organizations and artists in communities with a population of 6,000 or more. A total of $17,750 was awarded during this grant round.
