We have a new page added to our blog; how to sponsor a musician. This will help anyone who would like to make a donation, however large or small, towards the wonderful opportunity of our trip to Vienna in July 2015 to compete in the Summa Cum Laude music festival.
The orchestra consists of 18 members (11 violins, 4 violas, 2 cellos, 1 double bass) ranging in age from 13 to 19, and the cost is ~$5300 per person. Not only will they compete at the SCL Festival, they will participate in master classes, tour several cities in Europe and perform in Vienna, Salzburg, Prague and Grabenstatt. This is an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for these young musicians.
All donations are greatly appreciated and donors will be honored in our spring celebration tea, on our website and will receive a postcard from Vienna. Donations can be made to the Community Foundation of PEI and a tax receipt will be issued. Please note that the donation is for the Singing Strings and specify a student if applicable.
Please check out the Sponsor a Vienna 2015 musician page and see if you are able to help. Posted there are the letter of support from the SCL festival, as well as a copy of our donor letter which gives you more detail about the festival and ways you can support the Singing Strings in this incredible endeavour!
