CF2 (Central Florida Composers Forum) is organizing a concert for string quartet and other local musicians, featuring the talents of Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra musicians Rimma Bergeron-Langlois, Alex Stevens, Mauricio Cespedes and Brenda Higgins.
The concert will take place on May 12th, 2013 (7:30 PM) at the White House in Orlando.
The White House is the perfect venue for chamber music concerts, since it is in a private home! The Timucua Arts Foundation, led by Benoit Glazer (Conductor at La Nouba, Cirque du Soleil), has been serving the Central Florida community through FREE concerts at his home for over 12 years. The venue contains balcony-seating, modern art by local artists, and state of the art recording technology. It can comfortably accommodate 160 seated guests, but has hosted up to 220 people in a single concert.
Featured composers include Thad Anderson, Benoit Glazer, Eric Brook, Charles Griffin, Keith Lay, Danny McIntyre, Tim Stulman, and Karen Van Duyne. Please see the videos below to learn a little bit more about the pieces!
Risks and challenges
Like many others on Kickstarter, our biggest obstacle is the funding of our project; however, one thing that sets us apart is our experience. Benoit Glazer has been programming concerts for 30 years; 17 years in Montreal and more than 13 years in Orlando. The other thing we have on our side is that the content is already prepared: The music has been written, the string quartet has committed to the performance, and the venue is booked.
So the only question left is this: Will you and many others like you help us to raise the funds we need to make the concert a success? If your answer is yes, you will be helping eight composers and eleven performers put on an event that 160 people will remember for the rest of their lives.
