Make a permanent mark and help send Guthrie to historic Italy!

Only a few hundred dollars to go and only a few days left to donate to Guthrie’s campaign to go to the prestigious highSCORE Festival in Italy. Remember that Guthrie will derive one of the motives from the name of anyone who donates $100 or more, and will mention those who donate any amount in the published program notes (including the official score). Donate at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/817296367/string-together-guthrie-funds.

Help Ian Guthrie perform in Italy!

Ian Guthrie just got accepted into the highly-competitive highSCORE Festival in Italy, where he he will attend workshops and have private lessons with the Pulitzer Prize winning composer Julia Wolfe, Amy Beth Kirsten, Rome Prize winner and Guggenheim Fellow Christopher Theofanidis, Dmitri Tymoczko, and others, write them a string quartet, and present on his own music.
In addition, he was granted membership into the Pi Kappa Lambda – the only Music Honor Society recognized by the association of College Honor Societies.
Lastly, he has been invited to perform his award-winning work “Journey Through Cascadia” at the annual TMTA Convention in Texas.

He am looking for support to be able to afford these events – especially the festival in Italy. He will establish kickstarter in the next day or so. You can also donate via PayPal to ian.evans.guthrie@gmail.com. He will derive one of the string quartet’s motives from the names of whoever donates $100 or more; the person’s name will also be one of the names in the list of acknowledgements in the published program notes. Why not take a part in this process for a great cause?

Fire in the air! Freelancing, fundraising, Trio Con Brio

With an M. M. coming in less than a month, Ian Guthrie is preparing for his business to include more and more composing, with three current commissions – two new song cycles and a new work for the ensemble Trio Con Brio based in Fort Worth, TX.

However, all that being said, Guthrie needs support from you, and will soon establish a Kickstarter and other fundraisers to help him to undertake these commissions.

On another note, score samples will be coming over the next few months to the “works” page; so if you ever wondered how Guthrie’s scores compare with the music, you can now get a sample. Scores will also be for sale.
