Thank you! Our Groupon Grassroots campaign raised $1,900! Olga, Fred, and I (Linda) are so grateful to all who have supported our Salish Sea Players project. The Grassroots campaign was a one-time experience and I want to thank the Groupon people for providing this service. 100% of the funds raised during this campaign go directly to the project. Groupon charged no fees and even absorbed the credit card costs. Wow.
Salish Sea Players will be booking concerts for the summer and fall making use of the Grassroots funds. I’ve already booked one Grassroots show!
Every concert is a new experience. Our last one was at Fairwinds-Brighton Court, Olga and I playing duets, and a livelier bunch would be hard to find. There were great questions and observations from the audience. We were having so much fun that the concert ran over time—but nobody left! Two fellows, not string players, talked with me after the show asking about the history of violin bows and telling me what they had observed while watching me warm up (very accurate observations I might add-made me go home and practice a bit-ha)! Many people remembered us from our Holiday program in December and had made sure they got to this show. We are already looking forward to our next performance at Fairwinds-Brighton Court which is in the fall.
