Programa de acordeón y becas planificadas en Alabama, EE. UU.

Alabama AA
Craig FunderburgEl Dr. Craig Funderburg, (foto a la izquierda), Director Ejecutivo de la Asociación de Acordeón de Alabama, ha creado un sitio web para aceptar promesas de dotar al Presidente del Acordeón y 15 Becas. Al dotar al acordeón mayor, los fondos permanecen intactos a perpetuidad, mientras que sus ganancias proporcionarán becas, cátedras, cátedras académicas, bibliotecas y el acordeón mayor.

El Dr. Craig Funderburg y la Asociación de Acordeón de Alabama están pidiendo a los acordeonistas que apoyen esta oportunidad para establecer un Programa de Acordeón en una universidad importante en los Estados Unidos.

Craig escribe: "Alabama ya se conoce como la" Banda del millón de dólares ". El programa de acordeón podría ser el "acordeón de millones de dólares". El programa necesita "promesas" de $ 3.5M. Eso equivale a aproximadamente 7,000 entusiastas que prometen $ 500 cada una. No se están recolectando fondos en este momento. La Universidad no comenzará a aceptar fondos hasta que se hayan hecho suficientes promesas para garantizar el éxito del Accordion Major .

Ya se han recibido compromisos verbales de destacados acordeonistas como Grayson Masefield, Cory Pesaturo y Michael Bridge, que podrían participar como profesores activos o visitantes para el Currículum de acordeón.

Aquí hay una oportunidad filantrópica para generar interés público en el acordeón y proporcionar educación avanzada en acordeón para los aspirantes a músicos de acordeón. Puede conmemorar a un cónyuge, familiar o colega con un legado vivo.

De nuevo, en este momento, solo se necesitan promesas. Por favor haga promesas en https://www.accordionpledgeua.net. Ningún monto de compromiso es demasiado pequeño. Agradecemos sinceramente su apoyo y consideración ".

Esta propuesta también se discutirá durante la convención de la Asociación Nacional de Acordeón (NAA) en Dallas, Texas (del 18 al 20 de marzo de 2020). Sharon Seaton, Ed.D, servirá como moderadora de un panel de discusión especial que expresará sus opiniones relacionadas con el futuro de la música, incluido el acordeón.
