We are very grateful to the Northamptonshire Community Foundation who have recently approved a grant of £3,000 to help us upgrade our sound system from analogue to digital.
The Northampton Community Foundation has supported us well over the past few years. This latest grant is the third award that NCF has made to Earls Barton Music.
Ian, our fundraiser says:
We are engaged in a three-year project to upgrade the sound and lighting systems. Phase 1 was the purchase of 10 lit music stands, completed at a cost of £1770. Phase 2 is the completion of the lighting upgrade at a cost of £3272. The latest award will be used to complete Phase 3, upgrading the sound system at a total cost of £6595.
With all this investment in our technical equipment we are in need of additional tech crew members. These are voluntary positions, but being part of the tech crew would provide excellent training opportunities for budding music technicians – under the tutelage of our technician, Dave, and using our modern sound and lighting systems. Contact us if you are able to join the team.
