Herne Hill Music Festival's matchfunding appeal is down to less than a week - it expires on July 31st!
It remains well short of target, so please see the campaign page at http://gogetfunding.com/project/noye-s-fludde and make a donation or spread the word if you can! The page also includes a more detailed cost breakdown.
If you've seen Wes Anderson's feature film 'Moonrise Kingdom' (made just before 'The Grand Budapest Hotel') you're probably already a little familiar with this opera and know it was devised to be performed in a church. Anderson uses it for a flashback sequence at a church on a fictional New England island. The HHMF plans to stage it at St Faith's in Red Post Hill.
Based on a Mystery Play, Britten also wrote this opera to be performed mostly by children and by amateur musicians. The Festival hopes to perform this amazing opera on the last day of its 2014 Festival, Sunday 19th October. It's an ambitious undertaking - the performance will involve pupils from local schools as well as a large number of local musicians, the Calton Quartet, and two professional singers.
HHMF has been granted £1,000 by Dulwich Community Council towards the cost of the performance, but the Festival needs to match this through a crowd-source funding appeal. The remaining costs will be covered by ticket sales. http://www.hernehillfestival.org/ https://twitter.com/HerneHillFest https://www.facebook.com/pages/Herne-Hill-Music-Festival/353425944718559 http://instagram.com/herne_hill_music_festival
After 3 months of collecting signatures on the doorsteps of the residents of Herne Hill, we were finally able to hand in the petition to Councillor Jack Hopkins who was representing Cllr Jim Dickson. Jim will be presenting the petition to the next council meeting at the end of July.
Too hot for coffee? Who needs a latte in this weather? Donate £2 to the piano film instead - and lets get this film made!
21 days to go - if they do not reach their target £6,500 - then they get nothing! Kickstarter is an all or nothing crowdfunder.
Help the Herne Hill Piano to lead the way.
The next film will promote more street pianos for London based on the success of the Herne Hill Piano. What would it be like if there were more PERMANENT street pianos in London like the one in Herne Hill and it was our Herne Hill piano that got the ball rolling? That would be amazing and that is their goal.
That poor piano has been locked up for weeks - just after its birthday too - such bad timing.
This extraordinarily special star in our midst that brings so much joy to the area - simply needs a break.
Donate £2 today and make the Herne Hill piano smile again!
