56 hours and counting...
MONDAY NIGHT was such a wonderful evening! I know lots of you tuned in to the live b'cast on WFMT because I received so many enthusiastic emails about the repertoire and the performances. Zach, Kuang-Hao, Nick and I had a blast sharing the music with the live audience including many of our ANGEL BACKERS, and hearing the composers interviewed by host Kerry Frumkin. And, before the b'cast, I premiered the "Happy Birthday A La INTERSECTION" song for Julie Polanski, Cedille's Director of Development, who devoted her special day to helping get the show on the air (thanks, Julie!).
THANK YOU to everyone who answered the call for the $50 Birthday Song Special!!! Y'all got us even closer to the goal, and I hope you'll have fun planning your song recipients!
NOW WE HAFTA SPRINT, FOLKS:
We've got about TWO DAYS to raise the remaining $1,490.
If you've been waiting for the exciting finish, THIS IS IT. Please help us bring this unique, challenging, beautiful, jazzy, classical, newly-commissioned (3 big pieces) chamber ensemble music to the world.
KICKSTARTER is the engine to get us moving toward CD recording sessions in January, and an international release in the 2014 season.
