It's hard to believe that it's been nearly ten years since the Evolution Contemporary Music Series started bringing great new music to Baltimore! We’ve presented or premiered works by over 75 composers, with acclaimed performers from Baltimore and beyond. Our 10th anniversary season will be our biggest and best yet, featuring some of our favorite musicians: Pulitzer Prize winners Caroline Shaw and David Lang, standout Peabody Conservatory alumna Amy Beth Kirsten, and one of the world’s finest ensembles, Sō Percussion.
That's where you come in. We not only want you to hear amazing music and meet extraordinary artists (in addition to Sō, all three composers will be in Charm City for the festivities), we want to involve you at the grassroots level. In exchange for your backing – which will go towards music rental, artist fees, publicity and recording – we’re offering exclusive rewards associated with the music and people that will bring this year's Evolution Series to life.
In a city that has become a vibrant hub for contemporary art and culture, the Evolution Series has proudly built a community around excellent performances of 21st century music. This is your chance to become an integral part of that community. A Kickstarter project is only funded if it meets or surpasses its goal within 30 days, so the best way to support us is to make your pledge today, and then spread the word.
Thanks so much for your consideration, and for celebrating this milestone with us!
Risks and challenges
The Evolution Series is committed to presenting contemporary music at the highest possible level. We've learned that it almost always takes more time, effort, and money than anticipated to bring a new season to fruition. When one adds into the mix the intricacies of a crowdfunding campaign, from inception to reward distribution, we know we may be in for some unexpected challenges. The good news is that we've done all of these things before, and we're confident that we can do even better this time around. We're grateful to have you as part of this season and campaign, and hope you won't hesitate to contact us with any questions along the way!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
