In order for the Resonance Ensemble to come to Chicago at the end of August to rehearse, record, and then perform new music composed by Ken Vandermark at the 2012 Chicago Jazz Festival on September 1st, the group needs to pay for visa and flight expenses to bring the players from Poland, Sweden, and the Ukraine into the United States.  Although these costs, and the musician fees, will be covered by the budget provided by the festival, outside resources will be required to pay for studio time needed to document the compositions showcased in a world premier at the Chicago concert.  The goal of raising $5,000 with your help to record this new material during the Resonance Ensemble's presence in Chicago is an essential component to the overall success of the venture- it is rare to assemble such a large, international project, and this will allow the group to leave a document of the band's latest material for all the listeners who can't be there at the performance.
