If we had had sufficient funds, we would have made all of our work available free of charge. However, what we do is expensive, and we have unfortunately spent almost all of our original donation, $1.8M. Incredibly, we spend, on average, just to restore one score, around $150,000. And our recording costs are higher, averaging around $250,000 per recording. In today’s world, we will receive less than 5% of our costs in revenues from CD sales.
For this reason, we, like many other foundations, need to go out, hat in hand, to ask for help. Whether you are an individual who loves music and especially Musical Theater, a corporate foundation who supports the arts in your local community, another foundation that regularly supports the creative arts and education or some other form of organization, we humbly ask for your support in the form of donations.
