Harlem Chamber Players: Voodoo: A Harlem Renaissance Opera Indiegogo Campaign Update: First Week Raised 44% of Goal

Indiegogo Campaign
Morningside Opera, Harlem Opera Theater, and The Harlem Chamber Players are joining forces to present a semi-staged concert production of the Harlem Renaissance opera Voodoo by Harry Lawrence Freeman.

This will be the first performance since its 1928 premiere!

A contemporary of Scott Joplin, Harry Lawrence Freeman was well-known in the Harlem community and gained acceptance in classical music circles in the 1920s - 1940s. He won numerous awards, and his operas were performed on Broadway and at Carnegie Hall. Despite these achievements, most of his operas remain unpublished, and there are no professional recordings of his music. Your support will help us create history by bringing Freeman's long-lost music back to the public.

How You Can Help
Our minimum goal is to raise $20,000 to present this project with a full chamber orchestra, choir and 7 lead singers. Any amount you feel comfortable giving, whether it be $10, $25, $50, $100 or more, will be a huge help in making this historic production a reality. Your contribution is tax-deductible. You may also help by telling your friends about our campaign!

After one week, we raised $8,710 or 44% of our goal.

For those of you who would rather send a check than deal with using your credit card online, please send your tax-deductible contribution to:

The Harlem Chamber Players, Inc.
191 Claremont Avenue #25
New York, NY 10027

Be sure to indicate that your contribution is specifically for Voodoo and please write your name, email and mailing address legibly.
