From our homes to yours
When the COVID-19 Pandemic hit Colorado, we were suddenly unable to meet for rehearsals or complete our 70th season. In response, the Fort Collins Symphony (FCS) board of directors has been exploring ways to support our musicians monetarily, emotionally, and artistically during this stressful time of uncertainty. For those who don’t know, our musicians make their living through freelance activities which include contracts to play with orchestras such as the Fort Collins Symphony. As a result of canceling concerts, our musicians are not being paid. In addition, because of social distancing, they do not have the opportunity at this time to share their artistry with our community.
The purpose of the fund is to support our 52 tenured and provisional musicians who are experiencing financial repercussions due to pandemic-related cancellations. By donating to the “KUP” campaign, your donation will be divided equally among our musicians. Disbursements will be done on a monthly basis as long as the pandemic prevents our musicians and audiences from gathering together. Gifts to the fund are tax-deductible in accordance with current I.R.S. regulations. Thank you for your support! Our KUP runneth over with gratitude.
