Friends of First Community Church Music
The contributions to Friends of First Community Church Music make up approximately two-thirds of the funds for the Concert Series events. This help, plus the offerings at the events, forms the entire budget. Friends of First Community Church Music provides support for:
Annual Concert Series
Exceptional musical events, including the Candlelight Christmas Concert, pops programs, visiting choirs, instrumental and vocal guest soloists and chamber music performances.
Special Sunday Services
Major musical services with orchestra, including Soli Deo Gloria, Requiems during the season of Lent, the summer MorningSong services, and assisting with the orchestral budget for Christmas Eve.
Special Music Broadcasts on First Edition
Each time the choir and orchestra appear as part of First Edition broadcasts of special music presentations, Friends of Music pays the extra fees to the orchestra for broadcast privileges.
Design, printing, and mailing of publicity materials, advertising, orchestral and chorus music rental, music stands, production of the printed program, special music equipment, sound and recording engineer and rental of extra lighting.
