STATEMENT OF COMMITMENT
We are committed to making this project happen with your help. By folding the premiere into a standard SMC Chamber Choir Concert, who will be collaborating with Chorosynthesis Singers, we will be working with the support of SMC Choirs for venue, marketing, and program costs and supplementing student learning and engagement in the community in visceral ways.

After the West Coast premiere, we hope to bring this project to the East Coast with similar partnerships based in the New York/Boston corridor. If there is extra funding left over from the West Coast premiere, we will apply it towards the future premieres/residencies and/or the East Coast premiere.
