2012 is nearly half over, and unless the Mayans really had it right next year’s festival is right around the corner. Mark your calendars (if they go that far) for the first week of March and stay tuned for updates on guest artists, score calls, and concerts.
The Hartford Advocate did a wonderful write-up of the festival and our upcoming events. If you’re visiting our website after reading their story, please be sure to check details on each of our concerts under the 2012 Festival tab.
The 12th annual Women Composers Festival is seeking volunteers interested in supporting its events, March 4-11. The festival is looking for people to help with ushering concerts, stagehand duties, and driving and hosting festival guests. Modest compensation is available for festival volunteers.
Ushers and stagehands are needed for all six concerts, including the Choral Concert, March 4; Local Composers Concert, March 7; Electroacoustic Concert, March 8; Chamber Orchestra Concert, March 9; Concert Pro Femina, March 10; and Solo Vocal Concert, March 11. In addition to concert volunteers, the festival seeks drivers and hosts for our guest performers, the Curiosity Cabinet Ensemble, visiting March 9 – 11.
Everyone’s help is much appreciated. If you’re interested, email Daniel Morel at firstname.lastname@example.org with availability.
The “WCF February Fund Drive” seeks to raise $2000 in the month leading up to our March 2012 festival. All contributions go toward paying equipment and venue rental fees and honorariums for the musicians who graciously take time in their busy schedule to perform in the festival concerts. Show your support for these amazing performers and the March festival with a donation.
Your contributions strengthen the concerts that we provide, March 4th – 11th, and supports our guests, including Virginia-based composer Judith Shatin, the NYC-based Curiosity Cabinet Ensemble, the Connecticut Trio, and many musicians from the Hartford area.
As part of our February fund drive for the 2012 Women Composers Festival, we are able to offer a number of gifts to our generous donors, including mugs and tote bags with our logo, a new Carrie Koffman CD, and many others.
Gifts have finally arrived for everyone who donated during our Holiday Fund Drive. Everyone’s support means so much to us and we look forward to sending these wonderful items to your all. Please be sure to tell your friends and colleagues about our upcoming fund drive in February.
