K T 8 T • G I O R G I T N Ii M A R T Y R Dear WholeNote readers, You may have been following our financial and existential plight in the newspapers. Our cash crunch in December forced us to temporarily lay off our staff members, who then generously volunteered their skills and time in order to keep our concert programme. running . It has been a difficult and challenging time for us, but the ~upport we have received from our members and donors, from the press and from the artistic community has buoyed us up / and helped us through. Our thanks is profound. This letter is also a statement to · our community. I want to reassure you that although our existence · is precarious, our commitment is not. Our musicians and artists remain the unshakeable focus of all our survival endeavours. We have been able to resolve our immediate cash flow situation through the cooperation of the arts councils, and we are therefore encouraged to bring back the staff and resume normal activity in March. However, we are of necessity in an on-going process of planning and re-assessment for the near and long term future of the Music Galler,y. As our audience members, you are an integral part of that future. I encourage you to continue your support of the Music Gallery, and the artists we have the pleasure of presenting, with the most fundamental act of your attendance.
