ASO funds the Philharmonic Choir

The Associated Students Organization (ASO) voted in a roll call vote yesterday to grant $2,000 from their treasury to the Pierce College Philharmonic Choir in support of an upcoming concert.

According to Adjunct Instructor of Music, Terry Danne, who is also the director of the Philharmonic Choir, the money will be used primarily to fund the personnel and publicity of the “Bach: St. Matthew Passion,” a collaboration between the San Fernando Valley Master Chorale & Orchestra and the Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society Chorus.

Despite the fact that the Philharmonic Choir isn’t a student-run organization, ASO Treasurer Nima Jahanforouz encouraged the acceptance of the financial aid request because it would benefit a large portion of the student body.

Jahanforouz and Danne had previously reached an agreement for free admission for Pierce students to be implemented on one of the dates of the performance.

“[The financial aid] is going to be really helpful us,” said Danne, who came in person to the ASO Senate meeting in order to state his case.
