Happy Thanksgiving!   

CutTime and I have great news to share: a major foundation this week awarded The Miami Foundation $10,000 towards CutTime's Knight Foundation Arts Challenge Detroit project. This project professionalizes and expands our ongoing Classical Revolution Detroit series (CRD), spreading the joys of classical music throughout Detroit. This, plus a recent private fundraising event put CutTime within $4,500 of matching the $30,000 challenge grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. However, we must make the match by our deadline of December 15 and need your help.

CutTime is having a big concert fundraiser at the fabulous Studio D Art and Music Gallery in Birmingham, MI (next to Robot Garage) Friday, Dec. 5  7:00pm - 10! Please attend if you're around and hear CutTime Simfonica play symphonic favorites below, and jam some blues/rock with owner-singer Robert Dempster's Café Boheme! Plus we'll formally announce the granting foundation mentioned above.

This event is sponsored by Mrs. Barbara Van Dusen and Broadsword Solutions, another leader in innovation. 

Please forward this email to friends in the Birmingham area! It's free to enter, but bring a blank check to fill out AFTER the concert (to The Miami Foundation) to put us over the top.
Or, if you'd prefer to contribute by credit/debit card, ahead of time or in absentia, make a tax-deductible donation to The Miami Foundation's CutTime Fund online here

Be the hero and let's celebrate club classical together!

Thanks a lot Bill! I hope to meet you someday!  [Rick Robinson]
