My goal is to host and record a concert of my compositions at Sacred Heart Music Center. I have hired 19 musicians to perform 11 pieces for an estimated overall duration of 70 minutes. The concert is being recorded, mixed, and mastered by Jake Larson at Sacred Heart. I am seeking an ARAC grant to cover the costs of the production of 1500 compact discs with jacket/sleeve design. It will be my first professional grade recording. The CD will be disseminated inside and outside the community via local stores, my website, amazon.com, and CDBaby.com to promote my work in hope to attain future commissions and audience. I will measure the success by the recording's reviews, presence of a future commission, and amount of interest expressed in future projects. Concert reviews and CD sales at local stores and from my website will help me measure the outcome. If the representation of a performance on the CD garners a commission, the project will be a success. If the CD is able to attract more sponsors for next year's event (for paying the performers, venue cost, and concert advertising), it will be a successful outcome.
