Help The Music SPEAK!
Donate to make SPEAKmusic's 2016 USA/Eastern European Tour possible!
Click HERE for an open letter from founder and executive-director Deborah Bradley-Kramer on SPEAKmusic's 2016 and 2017 tours.
SPEAKmusic has been invited to travel to Chicago and Poland this February and March! Musicians from SPEAKmusic will perform at the University of Chicago on Friday, February 12th, 2016, and in various locations in Warsaw and across Poland in March 2016. Our tours will highlight American music and music by postmodern composers, including multiple premieres of new compositions! We will be working outreach with Polish elementary students, and are in talks to perform for refugees in Warsaw and the Warsaw Jewish Museum, among other places. SPEAKmusic is all about spreading classical and contemporary music around the world to new audiences, connecting with the community, and bringing people together with music. But we can't do it alone!
This holiday season, help us reach our goal of $6000 for our Spring 2016 tour to Poland and Chicago, to cover airfare and other costs associated with travel. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit*, so donations are tax-deductible! 100% of the donations will go directly toward musical concerts, outreach programs, and our national and international tours of spreading the music. Any additional and/or unused money will go toward future outreach programs and trips, such as our upcoming 2017 trip to work with students at the Kenya Conservatoire in Nairobi (very exciting! — more details on this to come later this year).
Donations are secured through the square button below, or via Paypal at the yellow button below and to the right.
