Hello and Happy Holidays!
I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and and friends and a couple of days off of work. In this week’s post, we have a picture from the 2011 Holiday Fundraiser concert. The evening included wonderful music, food, drink, and friends. This year for our fundraising drive we will be utilizing Fractured Atlas and their hosting services. We have done this before and hope that this year will be more successful than ever. For that, we need your help.
On the Fractured Atlas website, there will be a page featuring our fund drive. (We will post links as the time comes.) On this page will be a video and information about the organization. Please share this with friends! Many of you are already aware of what the Women Composers Festival of Hartford is and does, but your friends and family may not. The video will be short and sweet, so share it. You never know who may become interested in our cause. There will be thank you gifts for the various donation levels ranging from $1 to $500. Every penny counts so please spread the word and help to support this years festival and musicians.
What an amazing show of support for the Festival! An avid audience listens to Daniel Morel as he opens the 2011 Benefit Concert. The event was an unqualified success: great music, tasty food, and good company. The funds raised by that concert helped us to present the wonderful events of the 2012 Festival, featuring Festival Guest Judith Shatin and dozens of other female composers.
Plans are well underway for the 2013 Festival, so if you would like to help support our activities, please check back soon for information about our upcoming fundraising campaign.
Attendees enjoy the delights of good cuisine and good company at the 2011 Benefit Concert.
We hope you’ll join us for our next such event. Details are still being worked out, so check back for more info!
Food and drink at at the 2011 Benefit Concert. Mmmm… too bad your computer isn’t equipped with smell-o-vision!
I’d write more about how great a job Ryan did with the catering, but this has got me so hungry I need to go grab lunch.
The 2011 Benefit Concert featured not only great music, but also phenomenal food. All of the evening’s catering was provided by violinist and foodie Ryan Caparella. Below, pianist Windsor Johnson helps in the kitchen.
