Good evening, friends.
We are so excited for our upcoming event this Sunday. We will be featuring local Chicago composers and vocalists in a casual think-tank environment. Bringing new music--art music-- to the home is something that hasn't been valued, or acknowledged, per se, since the "romantic" era...or so most people think.
An important part of art, music, connection and the future of these things is deeply rooted in the comfort and the mutual appreciation between artist and patron/listener.
This Sunday's program features new music by Nico Gutierrez, Jonathan Hannau, Michelle Issac, Jordan Jenkins and Cassandra Kaczor, along with their ridiculously talented singer and pianist friends. It's an exclusive, one-time, private function. From here on out, BPP will be planning, publicly producing and supporting local, live musicians with a mind to pioneer socially oriented art in the city of Chicago.
We have many more concerts to come...stay tuned.
AND check out this super fun sneak preview from our upcoming soft premiere at Mary's Attic in Chicago.

Guys. We are so excited.
This is Cassandra posting on behalf of Brunch Project Productions. Ian is busy at work helping other people celebrate a late brunch at his bartending gig...but don't worry. He's probably toasting us as I type!
We are pleased to announce that Dried Tobacco Project will be traveling to Kalamazoo, Michigan on January 11th for a presentation of our major song cycle of the same name at Kalamazoo College, sponsored by the Arcus Center for Social Justice and Leadership and the Kalamazoo College Music Department as a part of their Social Justice Series!

We are especially thrilled to be the first installment in the new "Radical Pedagogy" series at Kalamazoo College.
Why is that? Why are we excited to be "radical?" We don't care if our art makes you uncomfortable. We don't care if we share art with you in unconventional spaces or through unconventional means. We just want you to experience the human condition with us on several levels. We believe that art is about communication and honesty! Many thanks to K College for this opportunity!
We can't wait to work with students and engage in dialogue about what it means to be a social justice warrior with music and art as a weapon. We will address issues such as collaboration with artists of other mediums, multimedia art, sensitivity to survivors of trauma and engaging with audiences everywhere to achieve the highest form of communication that we can as artists! We'll talk about entrepreneurship in the arts and how to build your own personal empire!
We, as always, want to thank you, as our supporters, friends, and colleagues for your continued support.
Don't forget to check out DTP at Mary's Attic in Andersonville for its soft premiere on October 17th!
Drink on, dear friends,
