Did you know that …
- If tickets were the only source of revenue to cover concerts expenses, you would pay more than twice the present ticket cost.
- Chamber Music Kelowna is operated by a volunteer board and committees with contracted staff to assist with artistic programming and operations. With no permanent office space, overhead expenses are kept to a minimum.
- Over 80% of the budget goes directly to pay the artists and concert expenses, while the rest is spent on promotion and advertising, insurance, postage, fees and memberships, and incidental expenses.
- We have operated in the black for our entire history.
- For the more than 50% of our budget that does not come from tickets sales:
- We are indebted to the generosity of public support from Canadian Heritage/Canadian Arts Presentation Fund (CAPF), the Province of British Columbia/Communituy Gaming Grants Branch, the City of Kelowna Cultural Services, and the Central Okanagan Foundation.
- We appreciate local businesses that advertise in our Program and support us.
- We are grateful to you, our faithful audience, for your donations, and for supporting our annual fundraising events.
