We are consistently blown away by the generosity of our TEMP family! While we knew we could rely on your to help carry us into modern times, we are humbled and honored by the overwhelming response from our community this week— THANKS TO YOU, WE'VE EXCEEDED OUR $10K GOAL with a current total of $11,700!

It is, of course, not too late to give! Your gifts ensure a bright future for TEMP: https://www.early-music.org/checkout/donate?donatePageId=5411af18e4b04f85eb6c31d7

TEMPest found a short cut, skipping the Romantic Era entirely, thanks to some more generous donors. He sure wasn't ready for that, and he definitely can't stay here. The dissonance is killing him! Thankfully, he sees some really exciting things in the future just ahead...

We're just $1K short of our $10K by Sunday goal! Your gift of any size helps! Donate today at: https://www.early-music.org/checkout/donate?donatePageId=5411af18e4b04f85eb6c31d7

Thank you to recent donors Martha Christie, Allison Welch & Brian Marks, and Anne & Raymond Ellison.

The Classical Era is getting a little old... thankfully, things are about to get ROMANTIC! We're just $2K away from our $10K goal! Help TEMPest get to the FUTURE with a gift of any size at www.early-music.org/support by this Sunday, October 2!

Thanks to Martha & David Christie, Allison Welch & Brian Marks, Jerry & Helen Young, Joann Zimmerman, Megan Spencer, MJ Riedlinger, Andrea WM, Bonnie Harris & Larry Reynolds, David Elmer, Elze Hamilton, Francine Mastrangelo, Jill Fatzer, and Anonymous!

WE'RE IN THE CLASSICAL ERA. Things are pretty nice here... huzzah for pianos... and vaccines... and plywood! We're probably not going to stay very long, though. Things are bound to get a little ROMANTIC.

Your gift of any size will help us meet our $10K goal by Sunday! We're just about $3K short at this point, and we're counting on you! https://www.early-music.org/checkout/donate?donatePageId=5411af18e4b04f85eb6c31d7

We're just a few dollars away from 50% goal, which means the Classical Era is calling! Perhaps we can both reminisce on our time in the Baroque (our $2K benchmark) and celebrate our transition into Classical (our $4K benchmark) with this excerpt from last year's "Celtic Crossings" concerts, published right there on the cusp in 1788. Please enjoy, and consider a gift of any size to get us over the hump: https://www.early-music.org/checkout/donate?donatePageId=5411af18e4b04f85eb6c31d7

TEMPest woke up in the Baroque Era this Monday morning, and it's a good thing: Things were getting a little out of control back in the Renaissance! It was fun while it lasted, but he's ready for just a little more... civility. He's gotta get to the future!

Thanks to another group of incredible donors, we're just shy of 50% to our fundraising goal of $10,000! WHO WILL GET US TO THE HALFWAY MARK? https://www.early-music.org/checkout/donate?donatePageId=5411af18e4b04f85eb6c31d7

BIG THANKS to Nick Duguid, Sue Caldwell, Yvonne Lanelli, Alyce Richardson, Jean Patterson, Susan Richter, Elynn Russell, Christine Hanna Leuck, Win Bent, Sharon Lockett, and Carolyn Kelley!

TEMPest has made it to the Renaissance, thanks to an awesome set of early donors! He's pretty happy here... the music's great, and who doesn't love a good turkey leg?! But the clothes are a little funky, and he sure is looking forward to some technological advancements!

WON'T YOU HELP US GO FOR BAROQUE? Your gift of any size well help us get to the future! DONATE TODAY: https://www.early-music.org/checkout/donate?donatePageId=5411af18e4b04f85eb6c31d7

We're off to a GREAT start thanks to a handful of incredibly generous donors! But "TEMPest" seems a little uncomfortable here in the future... I think he needs a little more support!

In honor of Labor Day, I labored to figure out what sort of Tacos to serve to y’all on Taco Tuesday. I figured it should be some 1) early music, and maybe 2) something we haven’t really featured before, and 3) well, obviously Monteverdi. So, where do you see this going? Early Monteverdi with 5 v...
