A fiscally sponsored project of Springboard for the Arts. To give to Springboard: http://givemn.razoo.com/story/Springboard-For-The-Arts
Silver Swan is a small group of solo singers who perform vocal music in a wide range of styles. We've sung music from 15th century France, 16th century Italy, 19th century Germany, and more. We work as chamber musicians, performing music as both soloists and as an ensemble. We're committed to performing with expressiveness, immediacy, humor, and beauty. Through our performances, we try to inspire our audiences to make connections between the historical and the immediate.
We've been doing this for a few years now, and every season we feel like we're able to deepen our own and our audience's musical experiences. From our look at the American War of 1812 in the context of contemporaneous conflicts to the historical and musical outpourings of the Russian Imperial Collection; from Christmas music to musical valentines, from the most basic questions of "Love, Death and Rebirth" to the sacred and profane storytelling in Boccaccio's Decameron; Silver Swan shares the serious and the silly in history, music and art with our whole hearts.
One of our goals this year is to make a recording of some of the unique music we've shared with you in the past (and will share in the months ahead). We would love to be able to offer this to you, our friends, and to share our performances with a wider audience around the state, region, nation and the wider world.
Of course, doing all of this is difficult without your financial support. We wish we didn't have to ask, but we appreciate the help you give us through the Springboard Incubator program. We love supporting Springboard for the Arts because they give new, small organizations like ours a chance to grow and develop while we continue our artistic mission. Minnesota and its artists are lucky to have Springboard here.
Springboard is giving you and us a chance to make the most of your generosity. By scheduling your donation to occur between 10 & 11 a.m. on Give to the Max Day, your donation can earn us an extra $10 for each donor. This helps us reach our goals that much faster. We'd like to get as many supporters as possible, so we're happy when our friends spread the word. Thanks (beyond adequate words to express them) for your support!
