Arts Funding

When the American Boychoir School abruptly announced its closing this past week, it sent shock waves through not only the local Princeton arts community, but the broader choral music world as well.  This week on A Tempo (Saturday at 7 pm), host Rachel Katz surveys some of the thoughts from around these worlds. 

A Tempo host Rachel Katz speaks with the co-chairs of the Congressional Arts Caucus, Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ) and Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY), about the Trump Administration's proposal to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts; Matthew Shaftel, Dean of Rider University's Westminster College of the Arts, discusses how NEA funding has supported some recent Westminster programs.
