Shameless Self-Publicity On A Friday Morning
September 25, 2009
The new vocal music media project, VoiceBox, which I host and produce, is ramping up for a January 1 launch on public radio station KALW 91.7 FM. The weekly series, which explores the art of singing and the best of the vocal music scene from the Bay Area and beyond, will also launch as a podcast and web portal.
At the moment, I'm in the throes of fund-raising for the project. VoiceBox is a fiscally-sponsored project of the media incubator Independent Arts & Media. So all donations to the cause -- which are gratefully accepted and easy to make by clicking here -- are also, happily, tax-deductible.
VoiceBox has received a few nice bits of media coverage so far. Early Music America, San Francisco Classical Voice and Scanning the Dial all covered the project. I would welcome any ideas for themes and artists to feature on the series next year, as well as any thoughts about potential fundraising sources.

Also, for anyone reading this who lives in the Bay Area: Indy Arts & Media is hosting a big Arts Expo in Golden Gate Park tomorrow from 11am - 6pm. The event will feature stands by many local arts organizations. Worth a visit.
