Interview with Irene Plotzker, the Board President of Delaware Choral Arts (DCA), a non-profit that needs local exposure and money to fund their programs. They used to have in-person fundraisers, but COVID-19 made it difficult. The #DoMore24DE campaign provides them with a framework for fundraising and for others to get to know them. Irene says that the group will be putting up clips of their music and amusing introductions by their singers. They are also planning to have a concert on spirituals on February 11.
According to Irene, the DCA group wants to grow and broaden what they are doing and to whom they present it. They want to make a bigger footprint and keep the Arts alive and well, not just in Delaware but everywhere, as the Arts feed our communities and make a difference in our lives.
