    Ticket to Live Concert Recording

    Want to come to the concert!? This is the pledge for you! Thank you for choosing this because without a live audience, we can make a live recording with an audience!! So, this is an important pledge :-).

    The concert is taking place at the end of March. We will be recording live at Hayti Heritage Center, 801 Fayetteville Street, Durham, NC 27707.

    This is the ONLY place to purchase a ticket, (not at Hayti's box office or on their website) as it is a private event.

    Your seat at the live recording is secured with this pledge. No other awards are given with this level, but you can choose the "Support AND Attend the Live Recording for $65 if you want all of the other neat rewards!!

    Pledge $100 Watch me work for 1 hour

    So many singers and instrumentalists want to build an understanding of what it takes to make a recording. There are obvious steps and then those you would never imagine, but that still have to be managed and negotiated. This pledge is for a singer/instrumentalist who wants to literally watch me work on the music for the CD at my piano while I deconstruct and reconstruct a composition or arrangement, work in the rehearsals with the big band, discussions with the instrumentalists, production assistants, graphic designer, videographer, photographer. (You can choose before the recording, or after the recording for the post-production phase for this reward). You get to ask questions and delve into the brainstorm and creative aspects in a follow-up Q&A. (You also receive some of the previous rewards (autographed CD, digital download).
