A few months ago we launched a crowdfunding campaign on Pozible (an antipodean-based crowdfunding platform) to help fund a new recording by the Orchestra, and are very happy to report we have made our funding target (and a little bit more!) and now we can get on with the business of making new Australian music. To all our supporters, thank-you so much for contributing to the making of our new album. Without your help we could not have made this record!
We set a target of $12,500 and managed to raise just over that ($12,852), which together with the contribution of private philanthropists, will cover the cost of rehearsing, recording and distributing a brand new suite of large ensemble music by our very own Andy Fiddes, written especially for Scott Tinkler, perhaps Australia's most virtuosic and innovative trumpet improvising soloist. We have Studio 301 Booked for late September and rehearsals start this coming Monday. We're excited!
And we're going on the road. again.
Shortly we'll announce a mainland Australian concert tour in late 2015 with a phenomenal home-grown soloist, and all-new repertoire to boot.
