Shabbat shalom

Posted by Peri Smilow (Creator)

On this glorious late spring/early summer morning I am packing my guitar and my daughter Allie into the car and heading to the Berkshires in western MA. I'll spend the night tonight with my parents there. Then tomorrow I'll be driving an hour to Albany NY to meet and sing with the Ne'imah Jewish Community Chorus - a 30 voice-strong group led by Conductor Anna Dubrova for the last 20+ years. Joining us will be The Mt. Zion Baptist Ensemble - a 9-voice gospel group. Together we're singing the Freedom Music of our traditions! Yeah!!

This is one reason I'm so thrilled to be producing a songbook. Until now I had no way to share my music with large groups. I just didn't have any sheet music for them to learn my music!

We're 2 days in to my Kickstarter Campaign and I'm totally blown away and humbled by your response. 32 of you have already stepped up and said "hineini" I am here!

I can't thank you enough.

      Have a wonderfully blessed and musical weekend! Wish I could be there in person but know those participating and in the audience will get an experience they will not forget! ...and the Freedom Music Project continues to make a difference!...
