Performers Have it Their Way at Old First Concerts, 1 Feb 2005 [cached]
William Bowles, a Richmond District resident and the director of the concert series, takes pride in the fact that they make a conscious effort to introduce new compositions and artists to the public.
Old First Concerts is "one of the best kept secrets in town," Bowles said.
Bowles is very grateful also for the support received from the following organizations: Grants for the Arts, from the San Francisco Hotel Tax fund; William and Flora Hewlett Foundation; Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation; and Stanley A. Ibler, Jr. Memorial Fund of Music.
Bowles says more volunteers on-board would stabilize the organization by developing a stronger promotional program and a more expansive fundraising campaign
Bowles has been the director of Old First Concerts for two years.He is thrilled when he pulls together a successful concert.
"It is really satisfying," he remarked.
