Dear Friends, 

I wanted to take a moment before our Kickstarter campaign comes to an end and say a first thank you for pledging to our project.  The response over the last 30 days has been overwhelming and inspiring.  

We have a GREAT orchestra assembled in a wonderful space and a top-notch recording engineer.  Because of your incredible pledges, I've been able to pay the musicians a little bit more and add a few players to our roster.  This has helped immensely to book great artists.  

Our recording session is this Saturday!  If you're in NYC, you are welcome to pop in.  Message me for more details.  

Also, our Kickstarter was picked up by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's journalist-in-residence who wrote a nice piece about the project and the idea of using crowd-sourcing for contemporary classical music:

In our final few hours, feel free to share the link to our project or the BSO story!  Folks can still pledge, get a digital copy of the piece or a CD, and we definitely still have a place for their contributions!

I'll be in touch soon. Thank you again for your support, and I hope you enjoy the music! 

Chris
