Devonport Choral Society recently received a grant from the Tasmanian Community Fund to purchase new microphones and audio equipment. This was used for the first time in its highly successful production of All Shook Up. A total audience of well over 4000 were able to enjoy the resulting high quality sound.
The Independent community funding body, The Tasmanian Community fund, was established following the sale of the Trust Bank in 1999 to give back to the community proceeds from the sale of a community asset. Since that time the TCF has allocated approximately $58.6 million to approx 1700 statewide projects.
