From friends in San Francisco:
Kugelplex has received a grant from the East Bay Community Foundation to fund an epic collaboration with the renowned Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir!
The new work, composed by Dan Cantrell, will have its world premiere October 6 at Freight & Salvage in Berkeley and also be featured at OIGC's Annual Holiday Concert at the Paramount Theater in Oakland on December 1st.
There's just one little thing—we need to match the money pledged to us. This is the first time we've ever done an "ASK" on the Kugelplex list. I HATE asking for money, but this is a REALLY important opportunity for our ensemble and we need East Bay Community Foundation support to make it happen (55-member gospel choirs don't work cheap).
We have until May 25th to make the match. OIGC's community has already raised a chunk of it. Now the denizens of Kugelplex nation need to step up to the plate. Please help us make the match and, once we hit our goal, heap some more onto that pile if you're so inclined.
Check out this link for more info on the project and how to give give give:
You know the deal: $10... $20... $2000... it's all good and helps us reach our goal.
THANK YOU ALL FOR VALUING AND SUPPORTING OUR EFFORTS!
