My fundraising goal of $2040 is symbolic. I'm singing a song called "Meadowlarks" by the composer Amy Beach (1[phone redacted]), a musical setting of the poem by Ina Coolbrith (1[phone redacted]), California's first poet laureate. It is estimated that by the year 2040, half of the Eastern meadowlarks in the United States will disappear. Their Western counterpart , whose haunting song Amy Beach recalls in her music, are not far behind, as grasslands are threatened by development, pesticides, and monoculture farming. Let's save them!
Anyone who donates will receive permanent digital downloads of me singing three pieces (Bach, Debussy, and Schubert). You can learn more and listen to some recordings at my website, http://www.rachelbarham.com/news.php .
