Support Flutes for Peace International Concert AC

Donation protected

Hello! I am Geri Rizzo, Director and Founder of Flutes for Peace Flute Choir. We are a local group of flutists promoting peace all over and we extend ourselves ranging from advanced amateur to professional levels. We have been performing as Flutes for Peace for shut-ins and community events since 2016. The picture shown above is our local "core group", all professional flutists plus a guitarist performing here at Ronald McDonald House for Christmas. Our main photo shows us performing "Ukraine Lament", a benefit for the Ukrainian war victims a year ago at St. Andrew's by the Sea Lutheran Church in Atlantic City.

We are ready to promote "thinking globally and acting locally" and are happy to announce that on March 18, 2023, we are performing our first international concert,
"When Hemispheres Unite" in Atlantic City at Asbury United Methodist Church to herald the beginning an international affiliation with hopes of continuing forward!

To make this concert successful we are seeking funding to cover the cost of paying our musicians (12) to reimburse them for accommodations and travel and provide them with an honorarium. The musicians consist of our flute choir members (8), plus our guest concert flutist, Berten D'Hollander from Belgium and our piano accompanist Nina Siniakova (accompanist for the Metropolitan Opera and Ballet, NYC and more), a total of ten.  Our program consists of the music of Reinecke, Poulenc, Mozart, Faure, Pope, Magalif and more!

Our community needs this in anticipation of it providing a springboard for future such events.

We had anticipated local funding but those plans did not come to fruition so we really need your help!

We thank you in advance for opening your hearts to this most worthy cause and establishing a rapport between hemispheres!

"First we dream... Dreams can make things happen but we need your support!"
