The Dryden Area Intergenerational Band & Chorus is an all-volunteer group with the exception of the three music professionals on staff. The group's existence depends on volunteer help from its Board members, participants and other members interested in keeping the program running smoothly. Volunteer roles include assisting with publicity, music sorting & organizing, member registration, concert set-up, post-concert refreshments, and much more.

Grants & Fundraisers
We are always seeking potential grant support to help with expenses. In the past, grants from the Community Arts Partnership, Sertoma Club of Dryden, and Tompkins County Tourism Program have provided welcome support, and we also receive some financial help from the Town of Dryden Recreation Department.
We are grateful to the Texas Roadhouse, Applebee's, and Doug's To Go community fundraiser programs, as well as the Dryden Community Center Café for past fundraiser support.
This program is made possible in part with funds from the Statewide Community Regrant, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County.
