Crawford Gates Documentary

$12,500 goal

Campaign created 5 months ago
Dr. Crawford Gates has had a brilliant and prolific musical career as a composer, conductor and educator. His output of nearly 900 works and leadership of three orchestra (Beloit/Janesville, Rockford, IL and Quincy Symphonies) as well as his personal accomplishments and warm personality deserve to be documented, explored and shared with the public.

A recent trip to Milwaukee yielded over 8 hours of interviews with Dr. Gates, his wife Georgia and many other musicians and colleagues. Photos, memorabilia and other information has come in. Still, there are a good number of folks and organizations with long histories with Crawford that could be contacted and information assimilated.

It would seem that a shorter overview piece as well as a more extended history is possible.  A reference to his works by genre & topic, and enabling more information to be included in the piece descriptions are also potential outreaches.

Gracious as always, Crawford and Georgia are giving and we're fortunate to be able to glean that which we can.

The time necessary to continue this work, organize and produce the materials is significant. Your support of this work enables it.
