Support the Silver Nightingale!

Thank you for all of your enthusiastic support for my music over the years! You show me in so many ways how you support me and my music, and how much my work means to you - and that means the world to me! The purpose of this page is to give you a way to show your support for my work through financial donations.

I'm currently raising funds to attend the "Holding Space Through Trauma and Grief" workshop with Heather Plett being presented by Tomorrow's Rainbow in May 2017. This workshop will be a great addition to the body of knowledge and experience I've acquired through my hospice and hospital music work, which led to my receiving a prestigious Volunteer Service Award from President Obama in 2011. The workshop fee is only $25, so I'm hoping this will be covered with just a few donations. Any funds donated over and above this amount will be used towards my attendance at a course with the renowned artist, writer and teacher Brainard Carey titled "Patrons and Sponsors for Artists" that I've been raising money for. I have previously attended a great webinar he presented, as well as a lecture on the same topic, and found his experience, methods and information extremely valuable. I believe taking this course will be a great asset in helping me learn how to better secure ongoing, stable support for my artistic practice. I'm currently raising money to cover the course fee, which is $349. If you would like to make a donation of any amount towards these fees so I can attend this workshop and course, I would be very grateful!

Update: My attendance at the "Holding Space Through Trauma and Grief" workshop has been funded, and registration completed! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I am very excited to be able to attend this workshop, thanks to you! Additional donations will continue to go towards my attendance at the "Patrons and Sponsors for Artists" workshop!

Please make your donation by May 1, 2017. Any funds raised over and above the workshop and course fees will be used to provide musical sessions for hospice patients at Broward General Medical Center and other hospice/hospital facilities.
