Constitution Week Event and other news

I'm pleased to report that we'll be performing our first sample scenes from the Boston Tea Party Opera with costumes and choreography as part of an event celebrating the Constitution on its anniversary, Tuesday, September 17 in NYC. The event is organized by a coalition of local Meetup groups and will have several speakers including David Lefer, the author of the recently published book The Founding Conservatives: How a Group of Unsung Heroes Saved the American Revolution. Here are the details. (The event is open to the public and there is no charge.)

We are making continued progress with the BTPO's fundraising campaign, and have received a third matching-grant pledge. (So far we have raised $4,960 from 35 supporters. We are 25% of the way to our goal.) Please think of sharing with anyone you think might be interested in supporting the project! Here's the link: www.BostonTeaPartyOpera.com/Donate
