On October 25th, we're recording two movements of my Chamber Symphony with 38 fantastic young musicians from around New York City at Central Presbyterian Church on the Upper East Side.
The orchestra we've formed believes in this music and the project, but we still want to compensate them for their time and energy. So the $3,800 we're raising will cover stipends for the musicians as well the cost of a recording engineer. We've got an incredible engineer involved who has done lots of high profile work in concert music.
Everyone who donates will get a digital copy of the piece, and there are several higher incentives if you decide you are able to give a little more.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my project!
10-9-2014: UPDATE! We've reached our Kickstarter goal, but the project still needs your pledge! Our total budget is closer to $5k, so know that any contributions above $3,800 will still go directly to the project!
Risks and challenges
Bringing together 38 orchestral musicians who don't regularly play together can be a challenge, and we have very limited time to record some very difficult music. While this project is ambitious in its scope, it's not a new process for me and the other musicians. We have a great history of successfully performing readings, concerts and other recordings. Barring any last minute extenuating circumstances with myself or the players, I know we can complete this successfully.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
