The Portland Symphonic Choir successfully ended its 2009-2010 year on the positive side of the ledger after completing a month-long fund-raising drive. The drive raised $20,000 from choir members and friends, and that amount was matched by bass chorister and board member Tom Hard.
"We finished at about $500 in the black," stated general manager Mark Petersen. "We can't be more specific because there are still donations coming in and bills to pay that will be attributed to last season. In all, we did well in this economy!"
