In 2015-16, the Barrie Concert Band participated in artsVest sponsorship training modules with other local cultural groups. The group received instructional resources to promote sponsorship agreements that mutually benefit Sponsors and audience alike.
We are pleased to announce two new Sponsors, the National Bank of Canada and the New Classical 102.9 FM, starting with the promotion of our June 11, 2016 Gershwin concert. Thanks to them, we qualified for an equivalent grant courtesy of the artsVest program run by Business for the Arts and supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
The awards celebration for participating Barrie groups will be held on June 14, 2016. The Barrie Concert Band thanks everyone responsible for their generous support and looks forward to building on its long-term relationships within in the community.
