Ogdensburg Command Performances announces a grant award totaling $30,000 from New York State Council on the Arts [NYSCA] to further the organization's mission of bringing live professional theatre to St. Lawrence County and Northern New York at an affordable price.
Governor Kathy Hochul and NYSCA Executive Director Mara Manus both said such funding, totaling $240 million statewide this year, is instrumental in supporting the arts.
Likewise, NYSCA Chair Katherine Nicholls said Ogdensburg Command Performances has a proven track record when it comes to promoting individual and community growth through access to artistic expression in the region. "On behalf of the entire Council, I congratulate Ogdensburg Command Performances on this grant award,” Ms. Nicholls said in a release. "Their creative work provides the benefits of the arts to both their community and all of New York. Arts organizations are essential, leading our tourism economy and fueling sectors such as hospitality, transit, and Main Streets across our state."
