Specific Projects:

  • CONCERT-LOOP  Help produce a Loop243 visit to your area. As many of you know, classical, jazz, and experimental music events are generally not funded on ticket sales alone.  They need underwriting to cover the variety of production expenses.  You can help fund a Loop243 visit in your area by donating lodging, a venue, administrative support, and/or funds to cover travel, etc. Your name will be listed in the program as an underwriter/producer of the event.  
  • OUTREACH-LOOP  Help underwrite a Loop243 appearance at a public school, library, senior center or other under-served community. 
  • LEGACY-LOOP  Help cover reproduction and distribution set-up costs for a legendary set of recordings.  These recordings are the last studio sessions produced by Robert Hohner for his percussion ensemble. Recently re-mastered by Jeff Harrison, the album was originally recorded by Harrison in 1998, and was eventually set aside due to illness. The album includes Mr. Hohner’s definitive version of Ionisation.  More information: loop243.com/HohnerUpdate2014.pdf
