Astoria Big Band Raises funds for NEW YORK Concert with GoFundMeFrom Director Carol Sudhalter:
"I'm a saxophonist and flautist and the founder of the 16-piece Astoria Big Band. I also have my own quartet. I was awarded a grant from the NEW YORK WOMEN COMPOSERS, INC to play works by their wonderful composers! The concert will take place November 22 at Steinway Reformed Church in Astoria, Queens. In addition to music by the New York Women Composers, Inc. I will play several of my own original tunes.
This grant is what is called ‘seed money’. It’s not nearly enough to pay for everything that makes a great concert: the band (piano, bass, drums, 2 vocalists and myself), rehearsals, publicity, promotion, donation to the church, a sound person, a printed program and audio and video recording."
