Symphony funded

A cultural mainstay is receiving support.

The provincial government is providing $13,000 to the Okanagan Symphony Society.

“Arts and culture organizations add vitality and expression to community life,” said Coralee Oakes, community, sport and cultural development minister.

The B.C. Creative Spaces program has awarded 41 grants to help arts and cultural organizations across the province develop new spaces, improve existing facilities, and purchase or upgrade specialized equipment.
