Double Entendre is thrilled to announce a new commission by Wendy Griffiths, founder of Changing Modes. We plan to perform the premiere this summer!

Double Entendre would like to thank the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts for continued funding for 2023. This will enable us to present an exciting new season of fantastic concerts, our new piece commissioned by Wendy Griffiths, a new website design, and more!

Read Mayor Adams's announcement regarding the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs support for NYC arts organizations.

We are pleased to announce grant awards totaling $35,000 from the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) to support the recovery of the nonprofit arts and culture sector. Following New York State's historic investment for the arts, NYSCA has awarded $90 million since Spring 2022 to a record number of artists and organizations across the state.

Governor Kathy Hochul said, "As a cultural capital of the world, New York State is strengthened by our expansive coverage of the arts across all 62 counties. This year's historic commitment to the arts sector will spur our continuing recovery from the pandemic and set the course for a stronger future."

NYSCA Executive Director Mara Manus said, "We are immensely grateful to Governor Hochul and the Legislature for their unprecedented investment of $240 million to support arts organizations across the state. New York State arts organizations such as Double Entendre are the cornerstone of our vibrant arts economy. As crucial drivers of our health and vitality, we are grateful to the unwavering dedication of arts workers across the state."

NYSCA Chair Katherine Nicholls said, "On behalf of the entire Council, I congratulate Double Entendre on this grant award. Their creative work provides the benefits of the arts to both their community and all of New York. Arts organizations are essential, leading our tourism economy and fueling sectors such as hospitality, transit, and Main Streets across our state."
