Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!
When Erich Stratmann and I started Sing For America in 2011 we envisioned a community-based chorus helps change the world for the better by singing together and raising money for each singer's chosen charity. We're now in our 10th season and we've never been stronger. With over 90 singers, a 25-piece orchestra, and incredible guest artists we will put on a fantastic show and hope to raise over $100,000 for charity.
This year I'm raising money for Music In Place, a wonderful nonprofit organization that I lead. Music In Place (MIP) believes that every community deserves a thriving music scene. MIP was founded in 2020 by a group of philanthropic musicians who felt the call to help sustain working musicians who lost their income due to the COVID 19 pandemic. In two years we produced over 90 music videos and livestream concerts, and distributed over $300,000 to musicians, videographers, and other associated artists.
As the public lockdown was lifted, MIP pivoted from video to produce live concerts. We currently provide good-paying gigs to Bay Area musicians and bring them directly into communities through free/low cost public concerts, senior center concerts, and school music workshops. Your support makes it possible for our mission to thrive.
I hope you will be able to attend our Gala Benefit Concert on April 16 at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in San Francisco. Please use “SFA002” in the coupon box at City Box Office for a $10 discount off the $45 ticket price. It’s going to be a terrific show!
