Have you ever wondered who classical musicians are? What type of careers and lifestyles they have? What their daily life looks like?

Questions:

Have you ever wondered who classical musicians are? What type of people are they? What type of careers and lifestyles they have? What their daily life looks like?

Project:

I will be spending my summer in the Rocky Mountains play with the Aspen Music Festival and School.  I will be taking advantage of the high level of musicians and interviewing many of the teachers and performers about their careers.  I will be answer the above questions and many more to determine what a career in classical music actually looks like.  I will then share the interviews with college and high school students so they will be more prepared to enter a classical music career.

I already have the contacts and background knowledge to make this project happen.  I need your support to get mobile.  I will be traveling throughout the Rocky Mountain Region and I need a laptop and a video camera to get this project off the ground.

Please check back throughout the Kickstarter campaign to find out more about the interviews, musicians, and showings at the end of the summer.  Thanks Kickstarter and thank you for your support.
