Thank you all for your continued contribution to our page!!!
Some people have been asking what we will do if we surpass our preliminary goal.
We will begin with a series of extreme cheers, trust-falls, and perhaps some impromptu dancing...but that is a big "perhaps"...We will then continue with a 5 step process as follows:
First, we will make sure our Tour is completely funded. The initial goal was to help defray costs, so any funding surpassing the goal will prevent us from spending money from our shallow, collegiate pockets.
Second, we will use the money to pay for entrance fees and travel costs for Hat Trick to compete in the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella (ICCA) next year. We were accepted to compete this year based on live recordings of arrangements written by members of the group, but unfortunately, we were unable to attend and compete
Third, we are hoping to create a studio album next year which can be rather costly.
Fourth, we would love to be able to purchase some microphones for practice and performances. This would include 12 microphones, a mixing board, speakers, and cables.
Finally, Hat Trick is doing something very exciting this tour... We have commissioned a composer to write an arrangement for us to premiere. We would love to be able to continue this and commission composers to write new music for us (and for possible publication).
Thanks again for your support of Hat Trick. Rest assured, every dollar you pledge will go to support the education and musical enrichment of these great young men, and with tours like this, high school men all over the state of Florida...or perhaps the entire nation...or even... the world...or the Milky Way and stuff...
