We did it!! In only 54 of the 60-day campaign, we reached our ambitious goal of $10,000! The campaign closed yesterday at $10,119 from 84 contributors. I am blown away by the generosity and enthusiasm of my community. This fundraiser was the largest jazz fundraiser in Ottawa to-date and none of it could have happened without an incredible and supportive community of jazz lovers. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed by pre-ordering, who shared the campaign on facebook and twitter, and who volunteered, attended, and supported the fundraising concert.
Over the next month we will record, mix, and master the music for the CD and then send it off for manufacturing. Follow me on facebook, twitter, and youtube for updates throughout the month. The official release date if December 1st but the Ottawa release concert will be Friday, December 7th at the NAC Fourth Stage. Stay tuned for release dates in Montreal, Toronto, and surrounding areas. If you live outside of this area and want a release concert in your city, send me an email and tell me where you live!
Between now and Decemeber there are so many things going on in Ottawa so get out there and continue to support local jazz! Visit OttawaJazzScene.ca to find out what’s on.
