RACC awards grants

Good News! A couple of weeks ago, the Regional Arts & Cultural Council awarded grants to a number of arts organizations in the Portland metro area. Here's a blurb from the RACC web site:
he Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) has awarded $1,589,710 in unrestricted funds (“General Support” grants) to 42 local arts organizations. This sum is the highest amount of General Support awarded in RACC’s 14-year history, about 6% greater than last year. The increase is made possible due to steady levels of public investment in RACC – from the City of Portland, Metro, and Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington Counties – plus significant growth in Work for Art, RACC’s workplace giving program.
I wanted to list the grants that were awarded to music organizations. So here they are:

Cappella Romana, Inc., $10,656
Chamber Music Northwest, $51,761
Ethos Inc., $17,544
Friends of Chamber Music, $19,454
Metropolitan Youth Symphony, $28,035
Oregon Repertory Singers, $26,085
Oregon Symphony Association, $141,066
Portland Baroque Orchestra, $20,804
Portland Chamber Orchestra, $14,525
Portland Columbia Symphony Orchestra, $13,295
Portland Gay Men's Chorus, $15,096
