For anyone who cares about and wants to support jazz and avant music in New York (and elsewhere as their work reverberates outward many times), here's a great way to support their efforts. The Vision Festival organization just released this announcement:
"The Matching Grant Campaign has been coming along very nicely. We are almost There! Please Please Help us to reach our $17,000 goal! This is a 2-to-1 Matching Grant, which means that we will receive an additional $34,000 for a Grand Total of $51,000. This is an Arts for Art effort to get our own space to present New York’s Creative Music. The space, to be centrally located in downtown Manhattan, will house an ongoing music venue, as well as recording and rehearsal studios. We have identified a possible location - which I will let you know about once we are a bit further along. So things are Very Exciting.
For information about all that we are doing, please check out our beautiful website – It also has lots of photos from this year's festival."
Having seen their festival over the last several years, I can vouch for what a worthy cause this is.
