Mason Jar Music Presents is a video concert series that pairs talented artists with original orchestral arrangements and resonant New York City locations.

For each episode, we carefully select a song from the featured artist's repertoire and reinterpret it with an arrangement for an ensemble of strings, woodwinds and other assorted orchestral colors.  Next, we scout for non-traditional, found spaces in NYC that capture the spirit of the song and suit the ensemble. Finally, we assemble our team of musicians, filmmakers and audio engineers to capture the live performance.  The result is a singular musical moment - a stunning confluence of artist, arrangement, song and space.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL:

Our goal is to produce five more episodes of Mason Jar Music Presents by the end of 2011. We are looking to raise at least $11,000 in hopes of expanding the scope of the series.  This money will enable us to access more extraordinary spaces and help cover the cost of transportation, instrument and equipment rentals, cartage, and catering for our crew.

WHERE YOU COME IN:

We look forward to hearing from each of you and rewarding backers with Mason Jar Music merchandise, exclusive content, and other involvement opportunities - in addition to the five new episodes.  We really appreciate any and all support; you can also help by sharing this campaign and our videos on FacebookTwitter, with your mom and her book club.
