We hope you and your families have a great holiday, and we wish you a wonderful New Year! As 2011 comes to a close, we ask you to consider making a gift to Ars Nova Workshop:
Please consider a gift of:
$25 and say This Is Our Music
$100 and say We Travel The Spaceways
$500 and be one of our Unit Structures
Before we march into 2012, and ANW's exciting upcoming season of jazz and experimental music in Philadelphia, we'd like to thank you for all your support this year. Thank you. Without your generous contributions, we wouldn't have been able to present nearly 40 concerts in 2011, including our three-day Composer Portrait: Fieldwork series, our five-day AACM: Great Black Music Festival, and the unprecedented three-day series with Instant Composers Pool Orchestra.
Those were some of our favorite music moments of the year, and there are plenty more coming! We have big plans for 2012 and beyond, including bigger and better music festivals, visual arts exhibits, and the launch of the ANW archival record label.
In the meantime, ANW's season begins on January 19, 2012 with the Philadelphia debut of the Nate Wooley Quintet Alpha. Please check out the rest of our 2012 season here, and we'll soon be announcing several more concerts, including a duo that's literally going to knock your socks off. Here's a hint: Philadelphia pianist + Dutch drummer.
Your contributions will help us to bring these and more creative music performances to Philadelphia in the years to come, so please give, and give generously!
Ars Nova Workshop is a Philadelphia nonprofit jazz and experimental music presenting organization.
