Thanks to all who were able to come and contribute. A special shout-out to our raffle donors, Kent Fine Art, and the musicians who turned in fantastic performances. It was a huge success, we raffled and drink and listened among gorgeous pastels of boats, and we still have a little wine for an Alaska party in the spring… Here are some pictures from the benefit:
Wild Shore Festival for New Music is a presenting organization dedicated to bringing adventurous new chamber music, with an emphasis on living composers, to the communities in and around Kachemak Bay, Alaska. Through these activities, Wild Shore aims to create an inspiring concert series set amidst the glaciers, volcanoes, 24-foot tides and endless days of summer in Kachemak Bay.
Next summer we’re bringing new music to Alaska, and in order to do that we’re bringing Alaska to New York! Join us for a night of Alaskan raffle prizes, unlimited drinks and great performances by Alaskan musicians to help raise funds for our inaugural season.
