Time of the Season

Giving can be hard, exhausting, maybe it’s best to leave it to the holiday seasons, then, when the culture as a whole concentrates on giving. If are thinking about what to give, and to whom, think about ISSUE Project Room. Your support would be most welcome this year, because not only will they be incurring the costs of traveling productions while the Boerum Place venue undergoes 18 months of renovations starting in February, but the Robert D. Bielecki Foundationn will match $15,000 in grants in ISSUE raise $10,000 by the end of the year. That’s not a lot to give, and you can donate or become a member and go to great parties like the one I was at last week, where the brewers Grimm poured their beers and Battle Trance played an incredible, mind-altering set-buy their record, by the way. Besides, like at the kind of thing ISSUE Project gives to Brooklyn and New York City.

I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
