22 Nov Kickstarter Campaign – FUNDED!
After our recording Session in June for Cedille Records, The Cavatina Duo and I put together a Kickstarter campaign. Writing the piece was already a fantastic experience, but seeing past my role as composer, and investing time in helping launch a campaign that would help subsidize PR costs for the finished recording was invaluable.
Setting a realistic financial goal, as well as planning rewards took much more careful thought than anticipated. But we reached our goal ahead of schedule…which rocks!
What was it about?
The music of the Sephardic Jews. Truly beautiful music that inspired my Plegaria y Canto, as well as the other composers involved to write music from the heart, and celebrate a music that is now, thanks to our backers, here to stay…
Where did the funds go?
Audience Logic, a marketing agency from Chicago, will work for the Sephardic Journey Project by promoting the World Premiere at Ravinia on March 12th, 2016, and the release of the CD on Cedille label, scheduled for April 2016.
Rebecca Davis, from New York, will handle the national and world-wide publicity for the recording release.
