THE FLORIDA ORCHESTRA

Of the $5,000 award amount received by The Florida Orchestra from Creative Pinellas in support of Family Concerts that will take place within Pinellas County within the grant period (total project cost $8,380), $4,125 will cover musician compensation costs (broken down as $275 per musician per date x 5 musicians per date x 3 dates), $525 will cover the costs of hiring two special guest artists (one for each of the two fall program dates), and the $350 will cover half of the musician taxes and benefits costs for the three programs.

The remaining budget items ($350 for the rest of the musician taxes and benefits costs, $1,500 for hall rental, $140 for program supplies, and $1,390 for program overhead) will be funded by a grant received from the Margaret Ewell Dickins Family Foundation.
