update from Gene: we are getting close!
Dear Friends and Supporters,
Nick and I would like to thank everyone who has supported our project thus far -- you are all so wonderful! We are impressed and really moved by your efforts to give this project the resources it needs.
We have until Thursday (April 19) at 11:59 pm to reach our goal. There has been a big uptick in contributions over the last several days and now we are about $1,600 short of the needed $8,000! You have made this possible, so please keep spreading the word -- with your continued support I'm sure we will make the deadline.
Nick and I will be working very hard in the next 10 days to have everything ready for the premiere of this work on April 28 and I-House Philadelphia. Our guest musicians Naomi Sato and Toshimaru Nakamura will be arriving next Monday, with the rest of the group coming later in the week. It will be great to rehearse with these people knowing that you support our work and will share in its success.
But for now, let's keep kicking!
With best regards from Nick and yours truly,
