The New Zealand Guitar Quartet, which is at the forefront of promoting works composed for classical guitar, plans to celebrate the life of composer, Jack Body with a special commission dedicated to this New Zealand Arts Icon.
And you can help be a part of it!
The NZGQ has commissioned guitarist and composer extraordinaire Marek Pasieczny to write a guitar quartet piece dedicated to and celebrating Jack Body's (ONZM) enormous contribution to New Zealand's composing community and the cultural life of the country.
Your help is needed to secure funding to undertake the commission and premiere of the piece. With a $6000 dollar target we have a boosted campaign to help us cover Marek's commission fee, with the new work projected to be between 15-25mins long. The Taranaki Classical Guitar Summer School and the Wellington Classical Guitar Society have kindly offered to be Match Donors for this campaign ($250 each) - so every dollar you donate, they will add a matching amount up to a maximum of $500.
