You can help ALIAS bring a World Premiere to life


IndieGoGo article picIt’s not every day you get to help create something that’s never been heard before, especially the recording of a World Premiere by a Pulitzer Prize-winning composer. But today we invite you to join ALIAS Chamber Ensemble and Nashville’s Portara Chamber Ensemble in recording “Amorisms”, by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec. Commissioned by ALIAS, Portara and Nashville Ballet, this mesmerizing new work for clarinet, string quartet and SSATB voices will premiere at our Spring Concert on May 7, 2014, at Vanderbilt University’s Blair School of Music.

How you can help…

This creative collaboration would not be possible without supporters like you. We hope you will join us in bringing the “Amorisms” CD to life by making a contribution to our IndieGoGo campaign here.

Funds will support the recording & copying costs, the commission fee, and composer Paul Moravec’s travel and expenses during the recording. Every penny raised from our IndieGoGo campaign will be spent on recording, commissioning and program-related costs.

Perks of contributing…

Each contribution through our campaign will earn you a “perk” that varies by level. For just $25, you can become one of 50 lucky attendees for the exclusive ALIAS Spring Concert dress rehearsal on May 5th, or you can have your name proudly displayed on this website.

For just $50, we’ll send you your own personal copy of an actual annotated score page from the new “Amorisms” commission, or you can secure an up-close-and-personal seating at the May 7th Spring Concert – with your VIP Ticket. For only $250, you can truly become part of the “Amorisms” legacy with your name appearing on the new CD cover jacket.

At the $1,000 level, the perks get really interesting…

If you live within 30 miles of Nashville, your $1,000 can earn you a private performance by the ALIAS musicians – in your own home! Only one person can claim this amazing perk. Will it be you? There are also two exclusive  $1,000 “couple” packages available, including a Nashville weekend on-the-town with upscale hotel lodging and elegant dining, that you can combine with your VIP Ticket to the May 7th Spring Concert.

Of course ANY contribution means you are taking an active role in bringing “Amorisms” to life. To see the other perks of contributing to this worthwhile project, click here.
