We're on the front page of the arts section of The Commons!
Very glad this quote was included: "Over the past decade, I’ve come to wholeheartedly understand the importance of the artist as citizen. As musicians, we have a responsibility to look at the communities we love and contribute within those existing fabrics. The hope is that, as we invest in our surrounding world through our artistry, the art will in turn become a stronghold in our societies. I love Jamaica, and I hope that I’m able to show that through the Pikes Falls Chamber Music Festival."
WE DID IT!
Our Facebook campaign ended last night with a final total of $5320. That, in combination with the other grants and personal donations, makes us safe for this year's festival! We're all ecstatic.
Thank you to everyone who contributed via Facebook, through the festival's DonorBox site, and by sending in donations. You made Season 8 possible! THANK YOU!
As promised, there will be no more begging for donations this season. We're so excited to now be able to concentrate on all the artistic and organizational aspects of the festival. Musicians arrive in Vermont in just a few weeks, and concerts are from July 31-August 10. As the events get closer, we'll send updates and reminders.
Meanwhile, check us out on social media via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. (Huge thank you to our new Assistant Manager for managing all of those accounts!)

Spread the word!
If you know someone who might be interested in the festival, we'd love if you'd help us get the word out. Posters are around Southern Vermont, but there's nothing quite like a personal recommendation!
Since visual aids are always helpful, here's a link to a pdf of our Season 8 poster. Prefer jpgs for social media sharing? Here's a link to a high resolution image of the poster.
We reached our budgetary goal, but we still welcome your generosity! Having a bit of a buffer is always helpful in case something unexpected comes up. And, any overage in our funding goes straight to next year's festival. Here are the simple and safe ways to donate:
