I need support for the printing of music from my masters thesis composition concert, as well as additional support for other costs.
I am looking for support for the concert of my masters thesis composition project, a spiritual cantata for contralto soloist, chorus, and chamber orchestra entitled Song of the Wind. I hope to create a different concert experience which includes dance and visual art that will begin a series of projects designed to get people back into the concert hall. The snippet of music heard in the video is from the work.
This cantata contains texts paraphrased and inspired by many ancient religions, with geographic origins spanning the area from England to China. It also contains texts of my own invention. All tell the story of a woman who is trying to discover the meaning behind her life. The poetic structure is based on Indo-European poetic modes that began in ancient times and have survived to the present. Musical inspirations range from Greek Orthodox chant to modern New Age music.
I am at this point most in need of printing the music, which is reflected in the project goal amount. But please, don't let your generosity end there! It will take more to complete my ultimate goal. This will be supplemented by other fund raising.
