Send Michael to Mostly Modern

In March, I found out that I was accepted into the inaugural Mostly Modern Festival. I'll be writing a new piece of music for the Atlantic Brass Quintet (check them out if you haven't!), and I received an internship to perform as a percussionist in the American Modern Orchestra (which means I'll be premiering works by other composers). 

I am unbelievably grateful for this opportunity! It is truly special. However, I need your help to make it happen. Even with the internship and some small support from the USF College of the Arts, I am still $2,500 away from paying for this program. My expenses include a large chunk of tuition, room/board, and travel to and from the festival.

Please consider donating to my trip. Every donor will receive a personalized solo miniature (either for piano, or for their instrument).

Your support would mean so much to me! it would mean that I get to contribute to making new music happen, and share my own work with some really killer musicians. 

Thank you!
