Highlights will include coffeehouse performances, workshops on how to get communities singing, and tons and tons of networking to get my music out there.
I have added a donation button to the sidebar (at right). Any amount large or small will help me get to this conference:
Guild of Temple Musicians -- plans to try and go to Boston have been downsized in favr of going to this slightly-more affordable event which is being held in -- sit down -- Portland. The entry fees are three times higher than for Women Cantors' Network, but I don't have to worry about airfare or room and board -- the GTM/ACC conference is pratically in backyard and I'll still save money, even with the higher entry fees. Plus, I'll be networking with a much larger group of musicians. Plus, my boss at the large synagogue where I teach wants me to go and may even be able to help a tiny bit.
Attending will help move me further along in my goal to make a little more of my living working in the Jewish community as a musician and teacher. Any amount you can kick in won't help you on your income tax return (sorry), but would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
