A message from Ethan: I am pleased to announce that we have not only met but exceeded our funding goal, so I will be attending AIMS in Graz 2023! This is a summer program in Austria, organized by the American Institute of Musical Study. I will be in the collaborative piano program, and I look forward to the opportunity to meet new people, collaborate with singers, delve into German Lieder repertoire, and learn more about coaching singers—with an eye toward applying what I learn to future seasons of the Lookout Valley Art Song Series and other song-oriented projects.
I have really been overwhelmed by the amount of support I have received from this community since I announced my intention to attend the AIMS! A special thanks to those who donated $100 and above:
