Please check out this amazing project (I am part of The East Side Chamber Players, read on about this creative composition collaboration! Whoa! Alliteration… ):
The East Side Chamber Players is working on a project that is donation-funded. ESCP is embarking on a unique musical collaboration with the Milwaukee Math and Science Academy and local composers. In this project, ESCP is commissioning composers to bring to life poetry written by MMSA elementary students, allowing the students and the surrounding community the opportunity to hear the creative thoughts of these remarkable young people through original musical compositions. The students will also create artwork that corresponds with their poetry, further engaging their self-expression and artistic talent. The compositions will be recorded in Spring 2013 and performed by ESCP musicians at Milwaukee Math and Science Academy and ESCP’s November 2013 concert.
We are using a Kickstarter campaign to reach our goal to pay for the costs of recording and paying the composers. Although we have reached our minimum goal, we are working toward a new goal of recording in a professional studio and including students in the process. If you are able, we would appreciate any donations you can offer. The link to the project is http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/910246324/opus-110-a-musical-journey-through-student-poetry?ref=email. Please share this project with family and friends!
