Who are we?
Here’s what they say about us:
"The range and variety of music they present is impressive . . . they continue to explore and bring to light composers who are off the beaten path." - The Boston Musical Intelligencer
“… a Dinosaur Annex program that was thoroughly entertaining - a word you won't find often in reviews of serious new-music concerts.”
- The Boston Globe
". . . critical to the future vitality of new music."
- The Boston Musical Intelligencer
Why are we going?
We’ve been invited to perform at the 10th International Beijing Modern Music Festival in May 2012. This Festival presents performances of contemporary music by renown soloists, ensembles, and orchestras from around the world. The Festival has commissioned three new works by Chinese composers Xu Suya, Qu Xiaosong, and Ye Xiaogang for us to premiere. In addition to these three new works, we will showcase the music of three prominent American composers - John Harbison, Yu-Hui Chang, and Scott Wheeler. With your support, Dinosaur Annex Music Ensemble can bring these exciting works to life on the world stage in Beijing.
What’s it going to cost?
Total expenses: $17,325 .
Airfare $10, 825
Boston rehearsals $6,500.
The Festival will provide accommodations and concert fees.
We have already raised $14,000 towards this project, and need to raise an additional $3,325.
Will you get charged right away?
No – not until we reach our goal. This fundraising effort ends at Midnight, February 29th. If at that time the pledges meet or beat our goal, then you’ll get charged. If we don’t reach our goal, you won’t get charged.
This year the Festival takes place from May 19-25, 2012.
