A New Look at the Budget

As business director, Pieter Theuns is a spreadsheet miracle. Pieter draws up a new budget, based on the new information in our rehearsal workflow. We start with a compact band and gradually build it up with more players. In the final rehearsal week, we’ll work with the full orchestra. This allows for a bit more financial headroom, much needed for the visual department. All in all, we’re on a tight budget to get everything done. Musicians’ wages for 13 people especially, take out a huge chunk out of the budget.
