You can donate in any amount. I recommend you donate what you would normally spend to attend a recital – or more if you can – but truly any amount from $5 to $5,000 ;) will help Seraphic Fire.
Once you have made a donation to Seraphic Fire, simply email Kathryn at firstname.lastname@example.org and say "I've made a donation to Seraphic Fire and would like an invitation to Evening Songs."
You will then receive an invitation via email which will contain a Zoom link for the recital. You'll also receive a PDF program several days before the recital.
No and no! We're going by the honor system here. Thank you for your support of Seraphic Fire, which like all musical organizations is dealing with unprecedented challenges.
I originaly wanted to do these Concert Conversations 100% live, but the truth is that the sound quality over Zoom is not as good as streamed, pre-recorded audio. I will perform some songs live, play and discuss excerpts of others live, and then for some songs I will play pre-recorded videos so you will get the full effect of the music as intended. There will also be plenty of time for interactive discussion and questions with all of you.
Evening Songs is the first of a series of Concert Conversations, each benefitting a musical organization that means a lot to me. Seraphic Fire has played an important role in my life, both musically and personally. I've been traveling to Miami since 2008 to sing concerts with this all-star group of musicians. With them I've recorded 6 albums, traveled around the U.S. and even to Mexico, had some of my most special musical moments, and shared plenty of laughs. This season Seraphic Fire is doing its own innovative virtual concert series – check it out while you're on their site to make your donation!
