...and therefore the end of our kickstarter experiment. And thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who pledged.
It's possible we won't make our goal (and I say that with a smile!) but in spite of that we're still moving forward. James is busy choosing photographs, Lily and I are rethinking the order of the first half, five of the musicians will be performing some of the new music at our concert in San Luis Obispo in July and I'm busy working on corporate sponsorship.
In case you didn't read the fine print - if we don't meet our goal, no funds will change hands. So your credit card will not be charged. Some people might think that our goal was too high but it's only about 30% of the real cost of creating the show, and with six musicians, two narrators, one director and a technical director to pay...it's a big chunk of change!
Anyway, I hope that you can come to the premiere in October at the Met. It is so rare in this world to have the opportunity to work on a project that really, truly thrills. We would like to thrill you too.
Every time I got an email saying that someone had pledged, and I looked and saw a name I knew, it made me smile. Thanks you guys! xoxoxo carolyn
