One week on our way!

Comment

Dear backers!

First of all, a big THANK YOU to all of you! We've been thrilled by your excitement and generosity so far in contributing to our Cellophilia concert! We regard you as an integral part of our community along with composers and performers and we're thrilled to have you on board.

We have now completed the first week of our month long fundraising campaign and we are delighted at our progress so far. At this point, we have 37 backers who have together donated $1,447. That is already just about halfway to our final goal! We've been features on two blogs: Arts Avenue and The Glass. And last but not least, our campaign was selected as Kickstarter staff pick!

Also for W4 in general it was a great week: we launched a new website, had two concerts featuring W4 composers (one with the NYU Contemporary Ensemble and a composer portrait concert featuring Matt Frey) and have added many new followers on our Facebook fan page.

As a first recognition of support, we just listed all of our donor's names on our website: w4newmusic.com. We used the names as given to us through Kickstarter, so let us know if you'd like to be listed differently, or not mentioned at all. We'll be in contact with you after the campaign about any perks you might have selected.

Thank you once again for your heartwarming support. We are looking forward to moving on with you on our side!

Kindest regards,

Matt, Molly, Tim, and Ruben
