Last summer, the Chinquapin Arts Center and the newly formed company Twin Heroes came together to start an arts festival in the Rogue Valley. We produced two concerts featuring the world premieres of a string quartet by 17-year old Oregon-based composer Seven Sky and selections from the electro-acoustic opera "No Sound the Earth Owes", by composer Alexander Vassos. The response from the community was incredible.
Last summer was so successful that we have decided to expand this summer from two to four weeks. This summer, we plan to present two chamber music concerts, two concerts featuring additional excerpts from "No Sound the Earth Owes" and two Queer Dance and Arts Events showcasing Rogue Valley LGBTQ artists. In addition, the resident string quartet will give a masterclass to young musicians to foster creative talent in area.
Thank you for your support! We cannot accomplish this expansion without your generous help.
Here are some of the costs we are trying to cover: Travel for 5 artists & a cello - $3100, Artist fees - $6250, Venue fees - $1500, Sound equipment - $1250, Reception costs - $1400, Advertising - $500
