    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Awake LOVE Orchestra has been exclusively selected to perform at IPAY (International Performing Arts for Youth) for presenters and producers from all over North America. We are being represented by the amazing Boatrocker Entertainment from New York City which represents a number of world class successfully touring companies.
    THIS IS A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY! and we are so worth it.
    Imagine us giving our LOVE to youth in the US and Canada Help us afford the travel and accommodation in Montreal?

    Since 2009 Awake Love Orchestra has been dazzling their audiences with a fusion of world music and modern beats. It's all about love and joy and the concerts have been known to give people an injection of life, laughter and appreciation.
    "The Love Orchestra offers a unique experience combining folk, choral, gypsy, pop and classical music whilst performing with a powerful interconnectedness, offbeat humour and a rare sweetness that is mesmerising, entrancing and transforming. Robert Wilson"

    We are aiming to have the tickets bought by November to keep costs as low as possible. If we can raise half of the £5000 by then, we can book them. As a thank you we will send you pictures and films from our trip and let you know about our success.

    We need approximately £500 per person in travel. This will be £2500 and then we need £500 in accommodation per person. We need much more than this to cover our costs and will apply for the rest via City Council and National Arts funding. Success in this crowd funding increases our chances for other funding.

      Thank you everyone for your generous help. We are slowly getting closer to the goal. We have also heard rumors about possible other gigs in the same area in January. Fingers crossed.

    With honor I represent a whole team of absolutely amazing artists. After forming the Orchestra in 2009 under the umbrella of Awake Projects that I am the Executive director of, we have performed for audiences in 5 countries. I love to spread the love through our lovely music.
