May I just say, Pennsylvania ROCKS.<P>Artists on essentially the state roster, PennPAT (Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour) have the glorious ability to allow presenters from the following stats (PA, Delaware, DC, Maryland, New Jersey. New York, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, and US Virgin Islands - the Mid-Atlantic states) to apply for up to <B>50%</B> of artists fees from PennPAT to present them. PA artists get to communities that might not be able to afford them otherwise, and communities who might not be able to present such artists get to do so.<P>

Pennsylvania's budget for the arts has increased I believe 70% since 1995. Way to go, Gov. Ridge!

In Philadelphia, the GPCA (Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance) gave money to the affected groups to make up the difference, but they made it very clear that this was a temporary, stop-gap measure only.<P>I agree with you, BabsLights, it's quite a bad situation.

It's not just dance that is suffering....

From the Chicago Sun Times:

Pittsburgh Symphony going broke

September 14, 2002

BY TODD SPANGLER

Quote:
PITTSBURGH--Without the sound of donor money clinking in its coffers, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra may eventually play in bankruptcy court.

In the last two years, the 106-year-old orchestra has seen its endowment drop by almost $40 million and its reserves dwindle. Contributions have been below expectations.

Now, with many orchestras facing financial problems because of a faltering stock market, the orchestra's managing director, Gideon Toeplitz, says if donations from corporations, foundations, government agencies and individuals don't pick up, the group could be forced to make cutbacks or file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
