Last night I participated in the annual Awards Banquet for the Music Department of Diamond Ranch High School, celebrating the students’ achievements this past year in the Band, Orchestra, and Pageantry. This was the first year I was able to come support them as their Strings Coach! Sadly, it will also be my last, in […]
The contract with PARMA Recordings for the recording, design and release of my next three compositions with them (“Counterpoint Invariable,” “Adoré,” and “Gypsy Wanderer“) has been fully negotiated and signed! We’re Moving Forward!
And I just have to say how much I Love and Respect PARMA! They are a WONDERFUL company to work with! <3
Spread the word, and let’s get this show on the road!
Why all the hullabaloo? What historical precedence is there for a composer (specifically a woman composer) to seek out promoters for her music? Find out in this interview!
Also! The latter half of this video contains clips from the three compositions featured in this upcoming recording session that needs funding! Like what you hear? Which is your favorite?
Show your support if you feel this music should be preserved for generations to come!
As you can see, right now we’re at $40 out of $20,000… Yikes!
I know it often takes a while to get a fundraiser going, BUT I also know of all the great encouragement and congrats I’ve received regarding this good news so far! So I know we can accomplish this feat together, and quickly!! If you have the urge to contribute and become a special Backer to this project, follow your instinct when it calls, lol! ^___^
One more idea I’ve added to this campaign!
If you or someone (or a community of people) you know, in the Southern California region, would be willing to host a wonderful concert of beautiful chamber music, including beloved favorites as well as original music by yours-truly, let me know!
I will gladly organize and perform a FREE concert — big or small, at a large venue or a private home, outdoors or indoors, makes no difference — of music for you and your community and friends! During the concert, we’ll take up a raffle with funds going toward this campaign, and I’ll offer a Prize Package similar to some of the Backer’s Rewards offered in this campaign, including vouchers for a free copy of the All-NEW Sarah Debut CD when it’s complete, as well as copies of my currently available CD, T-shirts, scores, and more!
This will be so fun! I have many dates open between now and throughout the summer….
I’d like to have most of the funds in by the end of June…into July at the latest!
Thank you for believing in me and my craft!
I know, I know… Lots going on with this project, fundraising for my Summer Recording Sessions with PARMA!
I’ve been doing a lot of research and trial-and-error-style investigation… I’m having a lot of fun with this!
I don’t wish for this to become overwhelming to you all by any means, but it is exciting to see this project gaining visibility in multiple networks! Thank you for being a part of making this all a reality for me by spreading the word!
As of this post, I’ve launched a RocketHub project for this fundraiser, as well as submitting to PledgeMusic. These sites have great tools and resources for self-promotion and for gathering a solid fan base! Choose your favorite and run with me using it!
THANK YOU again for bringing such enormous visibility to this project and making modern concert music known to future generations, preserving our rich musical heritage!
Brand New for the PARMA Summer 2013 Fundraising campaign, I have designed 5 Custom T-Shirts, available for Purchase, or for FREE as part of participation in the Fundraiser!
Check them out here, at their very own Purchase Page! And spread the word!
Today I’m beginning the full-on usage of my new technological music operations!
I’m about to head out for a rehearsal with the Rosé Violin Trio to prepare for our big show this Saturday. First I want to mention how *immensely * helpful forScore has been in my preparations– you see, for one of the new pieces of music we’re tackling (Suite in G minor, Op. 71 for Two Violins and Piano by Maurice Moskowski) I’ve turned the final movement of the work into an explosion for THREE violins, where we’ll be tossing the original themes between all three of us. And forScore enabled me to take my amended parts and touch them up properly and send them off to the girls for review.
Needless to say, I’ve now got my parts for our entire Saturday show set up in order in a set list… And (here’s the exciting news) my new Bluetooth foot pedal-hands free-page turner arrived just in time! I got to try it out a bit today, and I’m SO pleased with the whole set up now!
I’m going full-on techie for my gigs now! Woo!!
Enjoy these photos and video I took of my new set-up…. Gotta run and practice now, but look for more later!
