You can help provide the music scores that we need for the APO’s 2021 season.
It seems a simple observation to make, but for the hundreds of pieces of music that the APO performs each year, every player needs a score on their stand to guide them. The APO spends over $35,000 per annum on scores. This fund enables APO supporters to share the joy of music with others either by donating towards a specific score or making a general donation.
It is important for the orchestra to purchase scores outright rather than hiring them whenever possible. As APO Librarian Robert Johnson explains, “it means we can preserve all our own string bowings and other performance markings that are particular to our orchestra, so we don’t have to waste more time than necessary preparing the music for subsequent performances.”
You can make a general donation using the button below.
