A NEW RECREATED VESPERS BY MUSIC DIRECTOR SCOTT METCALFE
Scott Metcalfe has created a new Vespers featuring works by Monteverdi, Gabrieli, and their contemporaries entitled Vespers for the Feast of St. John the Baptist. We'll perform this new program with an all-star cast in NYC and Cambridge, MA!
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
This is a HUGE endeavor and we need your help to make it possible! Please consider supporting our campaign! Your generous gift comes with many wonderful reward choices.
The funds will go towards travel costs, beautiful programs, and a perfect venue to hear these works - New York City's St. Jean Baptiste! $10,000 is just a portion of what is needed to make this project happen, but we have plans in place to ensure that the artists will be well cared for, front of house will run smoothly, and that you will be WOWed by the performance!
Please, please, please! Join in and help us if you are able!

Risks and challenges
For the past four years, we have been so grateful to make this project happen. Our supporters have made it possible for the project to not only succeed, but to thrive in ways that left our audience and performers feeling fulfilled and happy!
Our primarily goal remains to help bring about positive change in our community through music and we want everyone involved in this extraordinary project to feel that their lives have been positively affected. Music has incredible power to heal and spread love, and that is what we work to do each time we offer a performance!
We are currently preparing for the project and we are working to ensure that we can overcome any obstacles that come our way. We've already had to spend time and resources to ensure that our venue is well prepared, ticketing is setup, performers are contracted, and many other details that go into making sure that the project will be a success. And we will keep at it regardless of what comes our way! We won't stop until we reach our goal of creating beautiful performances for our audiences!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
