Help Discover the Historic Music of Newport

 
 
Hi, my name is Mark, and I started a research project a few years ago trying to discover music that was written in or about Newport, Rhode Island beginning in the 1800s. I have found hundreds of pieces of music and know there must be hundreds more out there to find. I have started a website:Historic Music of Newport so people can see and hear what I have found so far.
 
My goals for this fundraiser:
  • Create a nonprofit Historic Music of Newport (So that this work and music can go on!)
  • Continue the work to find and catalogue music from all over the world.
  • Record more music, including the vocal and ensemble music.
  • Help cover the cost of keeping the website going and other logistical expenses.
 
What do I see in the future for Historic Music of Newport?
  • Live performances of the music.
  • A home.
  • Educational activity about Newport and her musical history.
