Commissioning Information Session
April 14 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Does the thought of helping an artist bring a new work to life spark your curiosity?
In partnership with Community Foundation Santa Cruz County, we invite you to a fun and informal gathering where you can learn all about the process of commissioning new music!
You may be surprised just how affordable it can be to commission or co-commission a new composition, how life-changing it is for a composer, and how rewarding it is to be part of the creative process. Past commissioners and composer Vivian Fung will tell of their extraordinary experiences, and Executive Director Ellen Primack will explain the curious logistics of birthing a new symphonic work. Music Director Cristi Măcelaru will make a video appearance with some of the most compelling reasons of all. Join us and invite friends who would like to learn more about this impactful form of cultural philanthropy.
RSVP requested, but not required—email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 831.426.6966 by April 12.
