I have recently had the great fortune to become one of few artists to be awarded an individual grant by the Maryland Arts Council. The grant is given to individual artists who show exceptional promise and ability to continue their work. This year's grant is for the category of non- classical composition. I need your help to match the grant amount and to cover the cost of expenses of the performance venue, the contractual fee of the performers, which include rehearsals and professional video recording of the performances for two nights of concerts. The title of the composition is "Suite for the Panaghia" "Songs for the Theotokos"(Mother of God). I am counting on you all to help me and the wonderful musicians and vocalists associated with the project to make this concert a reality that the local community will be inspired by for a long time. My team and I would love to have funds secured by End of 2018. From this projected date, we would like to have the two nights of concerts June 1 and 2, 2019. Your support would mean the world to me because this will signify a true dream come true. This particular suite is an honest expression of my personal faith and represents an important aspect of religious faith and culture around the world. Also, this idea is something that I conceived in 2006. That's right 12 YEARS I've had this idea, but could never actualize it because of the cost needed to make a project like this happen. This will be a totally independent project so there are no sponsors so far behind this. So every dime towards this project will come from wonderful supporters of art music like yourselves for which I am eternally grateful. Below are benefits of donating to this project. In advance I thank you and may God continue to bless and keep you all!!!
