Mar 26 Mon 5:30p - 7:30p Fairfax County Council of the Arts Annual Meeting I applied for the special audience award I to my amazement we were awarded this prestigious award. Many other groups do more than us but they are larger and do this as part of their outreach services. For our size we do perform often at retirement homes. But, for us the fees we earn from retirement homes is our major income source and as a result we are committed to this audience.
