Dear Friends and Family:

I am excited to be singing again with the Sing for America Chorus!  Sing for America (SFA) is a not-for-profit organization focused on supporting the performing arts. Other organizations use walk-a-thons or bake sales to raise funds, SFA helps people raise funds through singing. Last year, the SFA Chorus raised over $125,000. 

2013 SFA Chorus ConcertI'll be rehearsing every week in preparation for SFA's concert to be held on April 9, 2017Last year’s SFA concert featured incredible performances by the SFA Chorus, Tony Award-winner Michael Maguire, beloved soul vocalist Billy Valentine, accomplished stage and screen star, Julie Garnyé, and SF Opera Adler Fellow Nicolle Foland.

I'll be raising money to help support the Aswat Music Ensemble and Women's Ensemble.   The Aswat Ensemble is the Bay Area's largest Arabic music ensemble and chorus (http://zawaya.org/site/aswat-ensemble/ );  a subsidiary is the Aswat Women's Ensemble http://zawaya.org/site/women-ensemble/  I play Arabic violin with these ensembles (and sing too!).  Here is a small sample from an Aswat concert including its child singers:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efY2sSO-Y4w     Aswat  offers instruction in Arabic instruments, teaches a complex, virtuostic vocal form and the history and meaning of the repertoire.  As much as I love and enjoy Western classical music, I also love and hope to keep the Arabic music tradition alive through performance and music education.   Music provides a bridge of sounds and emotions to everyone and can unite us. 

Please help me support the Aswat Ensembles and the Sing for America Foundation by making a tax-deductible donation above.  The process is fast, easy, and secure.

You may also buy tickets for the April 9 concert by following this link.  Make sure you enter my promo code [SFA064] for a $10 discount.

Even if you can't make a donation or buy tickets, please help me reach my goal by sharing this page on Facebook and Twitter. Or, even better, send an e-mail to friends you think might be interested in contributing and include a link to this page.

Thanks so much for your generosity!
