Spring is finally here and Momenta is thrilled to announce that we’re having a party! In the spirit of our annual Kampelathon parties we are hosting the 2013 “Wake and Bake,” an afternoon of music, coffee, and baked goods. (Disclaimer: the only hallucinogen offered at this event will be the music of Arthur Kampela!) Please join us for an open house and open rehearsal on the remarkable music of Brazilian composer Arthur Kampela – and enjoy our pop-up coffee shop courtesy of Andrew Ding of The Chipped Cup, delicious pastries donated by Laurent Dupal of Ceci Cela Bakery, and a yoga class donated by Kawai from Integral Yoga. All funds raised by this event will help Momenta with the fees involved in becoming a 501(c)3 non-profit.
11am-noon: Yoga class- beginner to intermediate traditional hatha
(limited space, please RSVP to Stephanie Griffin: firstname.lastname@example.org)
noon-4pm: Open rehearsal, performances, and FUN!
Coffee and food served throughout!
Suggested donation: $20 – but if you cannot afford this, we will appreciate your support at any level.
$30 or more includes a free ticket ($15 value) to our concert at the Center for Jewish History, April 22 at 7:30pm.
Donations are tax-deductible, minus the value of goods received, if you donate by check, payable to our fiscal conduit, The Field, with Momenta Quartet in the memo line. (NB: for tax deduction purposes, we are valuing food and drink at $10.) If you cannot come to the event, but feel compelled to donate to Momenta, it is easiest to do it on-line: Go to www.thefield.org, click on “Contribute” and select “To an artist.” Momenta Quartet/Stephanie Griffin will show up on the drop down menu.
L train to Bedford Avenue; take the Bedford exit from the subway and walk south (against traffic); turn right on Metropolitan Ave. and keep walking towards the river; ours is a tall, yellow factory building: enter the door on the right-hand side of the loading dock (elephant door handle!) and walk up to the 4th floor, or ask Al for the elevator.
If you are coming from other parts of Brooklyn or Queens, take the G to Metropolitan and walk for about 15 minutes westward.
