This is only a short version of the project. You can read the full text on the Spanish or Catalan versions. We apologize for this.
You made it possible!
On day 10th we accomplished our basic goal. Today we have 113%, thanks to 80 patrons who pledged for Jazzing'15.
We are so excited to see people walking by our side and responding to our calls that we only have feelings of gratitude. That's why we have been thinking on giving you all something more as we've set up some new goals.
If we get to 7500€ - All patrons will be able to download 6 tracks from our future Jazzing 6
If we get to 10000€ - All patrons will be able to download the whole album before anyone else :)
If we get to 12.500€ - We will make an exclusive party JUST FOR PATRONS. There will be a concert, selfies, talks and more; it will be the perfect moment to meet you and share our gratitude and dreams with all of you.
Please, help us spread the word sharing this campaign with your friends!
1. What is the Jazzing Festival?
The Jazzing Festival is the first of its kind: it was dreamt by Joan Chamorro, the director of our big band, to bring the music to the streets and share our experience with non-jazzy people (hey! and with jazzy people too!). One of Joan's favorite quote is to learn music, first you must love it.
So this was achieved last year: we made the first jazz festival from Sant Andreu. And we must say it was a big success: the people, the musicians and all of us were so motivated that we want more of it. That's why we are preparing a second edition.
We dream of bringing wonderful musicians like John Allred, a trombonist from New York; Luigi Grasso, an italian saxophonist; both of them would teach a master class at Taller de Músics, on of the most important music schools in Barcelona.
We would also like to bring Ernesto Aurignac, Mayte Aguacil Quintet and many more. And, of course, our beloved Motis Chamorro Big Band, Messengers de Ramon Escalé, Celeste Alias, Magalí Datzira, Fredrick Carlsquist, David Mitchell, Víctor de Diego or Rita Payés and the Sant Andreu Jazz Band.
2. Why do we need your help?
Well, organizing a festival is not easy. And it's not cheap. It's a lot of work and many many people involved: from musicians to designers, from event managers to technicians...
And we want to keep most of the concerts for free: we don't want money to be an obstacle for people to learn what jazz is.
We are a nonprofit organization: all the money we make from concerts we spend it on educating, comunicating and with events like this.
However that's not enough. We don't have a big budget. That's why we thought of inviting you to collaborate, to make this dream possible. And we believe you won't be decieved.
There are rewards of all kinds. We have a special reward for all the people that won't be able to come phisically to the festival but who still want to make a difference and get a big chunk from us. We have called it JAZZING FROM A DISTANCE and we have put inside all the goods we have.
You'll find all the rewards on the right column of the page. Anyway, we have made a nice drawing for you to see and compare visually all the goodies:
These are the records you can choose from:
And these are the T-shirts you can choose from:
All the digital rewards (links and downloads) will be sent after finishing the campaign and contacting all of you.
The other rewards will be given or sent on september 2015.
