Salisbury Sustainer Award

Salisbury Singers instituted this award in 2009 to recognize the critical support provided by local businesses, charitable foundations and trusts that help sustain its legacy of performing quality works through out the greater Worcester region.

The award for our 40th anniversary season is being presented to the Even and Malama Collinsworth Advised Fund of the Community of Sarasota County. The Advised Fund has supported Salisbury Singers since its inception in 1996 and was established by Malama and Even Collinsworth to support cultural and educational programs.

We at Salisbury Singers Inc. give this award to Even Collinsworth with gratitude and appreciation. The award will be presented to Even Collinsworth, who resides in Florida, at a later date.
