Creative Capital recently announced $50,000 in funds going to Requiem For America, back on 24 January 2023 HERE. I'm tardy announcing this, I know! It is an honor to be so supported and recognized. My official Creative Capital Project Page about Requiem For America is HERE.
Creative Capital funding will primarily go toward the composing of the Requiem, and hopefully additional funding will be secured for this massive compositional undertaking. Partial funding will also go toward beginning production expenses. In addition, more supporters have come forward, including a major supporter, Cerise Lim Jacobs and White Snake Projects (WSP), who will take on a major role as Executive Producer. Thank you Cerise and WSP!
Requiem for America has been a long time coming, a decade and a half of ideas and very small steps. With this major support, Requiem will most likely see a premiere in Boston, 2025. Special thanks to our other Producers: The Lenape Center and Dr. Robert Gehrenbeck. To see all our Producers and Supporters, visit the Support link HERE. Many supporters and funders have contributed to partial movements, readings, workshops, and encouraging early renditions of the Requiem. They all have my deepest thanks! — Brent
