Each year, the Sewanee Summer Music Festival selects special projects that will most improve the work we do here. Below are particular areas of need for 2013. If you would like to support a project, please contact the SSMF for exact costs and more information on how these items will help the Festival. You may specify one of the projects below in your donation, and we will make sure your gift is used for that purpose.
1. Percussion equipment
- Marimba, 5-octave, $12,000
- Vibraphone, 3-octave, $3,200
- Chimes, 1.5-octave, $4,000
2. Musician chairs and acoustic shields, for our main stage
- Ergonomically correct, durable musician chairs cost $200 each and can be donated in sets of 5 or more.
- Acoustic shields, to protect the hearing of musicians seated near loud instruments, $250 each.
3. Chamber music scores. We have many sets of chamber music parts that lack a score. We wish to complete our collection by purchasing missing scores.
- $100, $250, and $500 gifts allow for score purchases
