Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia's NEW commercial CD. Three commissioned works for large chorus & orchestra by Philadelphia composers.
In 2008, Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia was awarded a matching grant up to $25,000 from The Presser Foundation administered by the Philadelphia Music Project in the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage for a commercial CD release of our 2006 Andrea Clearfield's Golem Psalms and 2007 James Primosch Fire-Memory/River-Memory performances. As it was a matching grant, the project was put on hold until we felt like we could raise the requisite matching funds. As a result of our patience, we now have the opportunity to add the transfixing Jennifer Higdon work On the Death of the Righteous, commissioned and performed by Mendelssohn Club in 2009. We could think of no better validation of the incredible work by our singers and Artistic Director Alan Harler's artistic vision, which has defined Mendelssohn Club for the last 23 years nationally and beyond.
The Alan Harler New Ventures Fund supports the commissioning and premiering of new music to ensure the future of choral music. Your gift to this fund supports this exceptional commercial CD, scheduled for release in late 2011/early 2012.
