Dear Band Directors,
Later today AMP: The Association of Music Parents will launch a major crowdfunding campaign in support of completing the feature documentary film, Marching Beyond Halftime.
High school music programs, music booster organizations and band supporters across the United States are being invited to assist the Association of Music Parents (AMP) with a crowdfunding effort to secure the remaining funds needed for producer/director Sara Flatow to complete her film documentary, Marching Beyond Halftime
We have an outstanding group of music companies who are supporting the creation of this documentary by generously contributing to schools or music booster programs prizes valued at over $50,000 if they participate in the crowdfunding campaign set to raise a minimum of $250,000.
Set to launch later today (Friday, Feb. 17) and run through April 14 via the fundraising site for charitable causes - CrowdRise, the Marching Beyond Halftime campaign through AMP will seek to engage at least 100 teams including bands, parents, music booster organizations and businesses as they assemble 25 or more people who will raise at least $100 each.
The team that raises the most dollars will win an in-school clinic and concert by the internationally-acclaimed, Grammy-award winning group, Canadian Brass; a partnership made possible by the Canadian Brass and Conn-Selmer, Inc.
The top fundraising group wins a day with the world-renown Canadian Brass! They will visityour school for a clinic and concert during the 2017-18 school year and subject to scheduling availability.
