Kayla Wilson's Fundraiser:

Help Kayla Get to Boston in June for Violin Master Classes!

So you all have seen me blasting the Facebook newsfeed in shock: I've been accepted to participate in violin master classes with virtuoso and all around good-guy, Mark O'Connor, located at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts in June of this year!

Please help me reach my goal of $2,100.00. This will cover the costs of travel, housing, fees, materials, and tuition for my master classes at the college.

If you are able to donate-- this is how the math breaks down for this:

-If each of you donated just $10.00, I'd have the entire thing paid for, plus a carbon-fiber performance bow.
-$5.00 would pay the entire cost of the tuition.
-$2.00 from each of you would pay for my roundtrip plane ticket from Chicago to Boston, and food!

Any little bit will help, and will be appreciated more than you could possible know. In addition to violin performance, I'll be learning key skills in furthering my roll as a true Citizen Musician in Chicago with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

If you can't donate, please share with friends.

To quote my dear friend Ben stationed somewhere in the Arab Emirates:

"I'm glad you haven't betrayed your musical talent. I know you expanded out into the discipline of visual arts, but I just feel like music is your bread and butter. If I were more cultured, I would further appreciate the gravity of your new standing in the Chicago Orchestra, but, alas, I have crushed far too many Coors Lights in my life. I can say that it is pretty damn cool though, and do keep being ridiculously good at playing music."

Thanks, guys- I appreciate it.
