The Orange County Symphony of Garden Grove voted Monday to appeal its California Arts Council panel rating on the grounds that no council official has attended a performance by the orchestra in at least four years. A council panel, using tape-recordings to assess quality, recently gave the orchestra a 2-plus rating on a scale of 1 to 4. Typically, only groups rated 3-minus or above get grants. The orchestra received $3,387 from the state last year and applied for $29,000 for fiscal 1992-93.

Orange County arts leaders Charles Desmarais and Harvey Stearn have been appointed to an ad hoc study group slated to revamp the California Arts Council's largest grant program. Desmarais, director of the Laguna Art Museum, and Stearn, an Irvine developer and arts council member, will serve on the new, 22-member panel to recommend major changes to the council's Organizational Support Program, which awards about $7.5 million annually, or more than half of the agency's grant budget.

The California Arts Council on Friday announced a grant of $39,051 to the Orange County Philharmonic Society, more than double the amount originally awarded for the year. In September, the society--far and away the prime sponsor of classical music in Orange County--was awarded $19,313 by the council, an 18% drop from last year, and was given a 3-plus rating on a 4-point scale for artistic achievement and managerial strength.

What are the best strategies for persuading governor-elect Pete Wilson to take action on arts issues? What are the best ways to link the arts and the global economy at local, state and national levels? How can the arts in California draw more attention from foreign visitors? The California Confederation of the Arts is attempting to answer those and other questions this week during its annual meeting of more than 300 top members of the state's arts community.

Orange County, one of a handful of counties without a local arts agency, suffers financially and culturally as a result, the head of a national arts advocacy group and a top state arts official said Friday. While the arts attract private contributions here, a local arts agency would draw additional state and federal money as well, said Jonathan Katz, executive director of the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies in Washington, D.C.

Gov. George Deukmejian has added $1 million to the budget of the California Arts Council, reversing his previous proposal to trim the agency's spending plan by $3 million. The governor, who had recommended the deep cut in January, raised the council's budget for fiscal year 1989-90 to $16.6 million. The announcement came Friday when the governor signed into law the state budget of $49.3 billion. Reaction to Deukmejian's action was largely, though not entirely, positive.

Looking at the record, it's fair to ask by what criterion the California Arts Council decided to reduce significantly its award this year to the Orange County Philharmonic Society. The organization has just received an 18% reduction in its grant from last year. The answer, on the surface at least, is that an advisory panel found fault with the Philharmonic Society's efforts to reach out to the community through various programs, and the council agreed with that finding.

Joanne C. Kozberg, director of the California Arts Council, used the occasion of a luncheon talk Wednesday at South Coast Repertory to prod the arts and business leaders on hand about the lack of a countywide arts agency. "It seems to me that some wonderful opportunities are eluding the residents of this county," Kozberg told an audience that was assembled on a set from SCR's "A Christmas Carol."
