The Veronika earns CCA grant

The Veronika String Quartet was among 128 awards from the Colorado Council for the Arts Grant program, which awarded $907,000 to support arts and culture activities in 33 counties. The CCA awarded $8,300 to the VSQ for its 20th season Anniversary Celebration, which will promote music of American women composers. Grants to Artists and Organizations supports arts and cultural activities that make the arts more accessible to all Coloradans, expand access to quality arts education for young people, support tourism and economic development, preserve and promote our cultural heritage and strengthen arts-related businesses. The total grant funds are 25 percent less than last year, reflecting the state’s overall budget reductions.
