About

We are emerging professional composers from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and we are recording an album of new music to share with the world. Together, we can bring this vision to life.

Our album will feature brand new works for solo flute and clarinet written by eleven of Cincinnati's up-and-coming composers and will be recorded by two of our conservatory's top performers during Q2, 2018. The album will subsequently released internationally through a professional record label.

All of us come from diverse musical backgrounds and there is sure to be something for everyone on this album.

Your support will enable us to record, produce, and distribute this disc, allowing us to share our music with the world. Please help us make this project a reality! Thank you!

Risks and challenges

There are no significant risks. The composers are already writing and the performers are negotiating their recording schedules now.

The composers, performers, and recording engineers are all experienced professionals in their respective fields. The budget is well researched and meets all industry standards.

The only remaining challenge is meeting our fundraising goal through this Kickstarter campaign - that is where you come in! The remaining budget deficit will be covered by grants, the proceeds of a benefit concert in Cincinnati, two consortium commissions, and personal contributions.

After the completion of the project, all reward distribution will occur in a timely manner, but please be aware that the delivery dates listed in the reward descriptions are estimates and are subject to change. Project supporters will be kept up-to-date on our progress through Kickstarter's internal Update system.
