A few days ago, we launched a shiny new Kickstarter campaign to help us fund 4 commissions for new works from some of our favorite composers, Brooks Frederickson, Matt Frey, Molly Joyce, and Pascal Le Boeuf. It’s called the Echo Chamber Commissioning Fund. We’re incredibly excited to bring these new works to life, which will be permanent parts of our repertoire. Here’s a blurb about the campaign from the project page:
We need your help to bring these new works to fruition! We’re hoping to raise $2,000 through this campaign to help augment our Commissioning Fund, so we can pay each of these four fantastic composers a fair rate for their work. All of the money we raise will go directly to the composers and their work. If we exceed our goal, the additional funds will help cover other costs associated with the concert, including space rental and making a great audio-video recording.
Amazingly, we’ve already exceeded that original goal (within 24 hours of launch, no less!), thanks to a bunch of super generous supporters. With our first stretch goal, we’re hoping to bring our pledges to $3,500, to cover the costs for space and make a high-quality video of the premieres of these pieces.
We hope you’ll consider backing our project—tis the season!—and sharing with fellow New Music lovers! THANK YOU.
