I’m crowd funding. For the second time, I’m raising money to perform with Erica Sipes. This time, it’s on a much larger scale – we’ve been invited to give the world premiere of Peter Amsel’s three movement piece for flute and piano, In Inceptum Finis Est, at the National Flute Association Convention in New Orleans on August 8.

I didn’t come to the decision to fundraise lightly. I now have three weeks to raise the funds I need to guarantee my attendance at the convention in order to perform.
Donations to my GoFundMe campaign will help cover the costs of flights, rental cars (I will be driving to Virginia to rehearse with Erica prior to flying to New Orleans), and hotel and food expenses. Due to personal financial reasons, I do not have the funds to cover these expenses myself which is why I’m asking my friends, family and audience to help support live performance. Notably, the performance of new music.
The symbiotic relationship between composers, performers and audiences has never been more important. While the pros and cons of crowd funding have been furiously discussed and debated, I do believe that crowd funding for new music is valid. It’s the performer’s job to share the experience of the music with the audience and help the audience experience it even if they may not be as familiar with the language of the music as they might be with Beethoven or Chopin.
Crowd funding helps invest audiences in this important work – the creation and performance of new music. The National Flute Association convention is one way in which to help spread the work of composers among those in the flute world. When Erica and I perform at the convention, our participation in the convention will plant a seed which we will be able to continue cultivating long after the closing ceremonies.
In Day 1 of the fundraising campaign, I have been overjoyed at the generosity shown by our supporters. We’re already almost a third of the way there.
Long term, I don’t know the next opportunity I’ll have to perform for this sort of expanded audience. I’m enrolled in the classes I need to apply to physical therapy school and I need to save up to obtain my Andover Educators license. I will keep wearing my entrepreneurial hats, but I also have to put on my student hat and commit to the long-term evolution of my identity as a musician.
Even if you can’t donate to the campaign at this time, please share this blog post or the GoFundMe page directly and tell everyone you know. Spreading the word is just as vital. I wouldn’t be asking for money if I didn’t think this was a worthy cause that goes above and beyond myself.
Together, let’s promote new music at the NFA Convention.
