The Story

“This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.”  -Leonard Bernstein, composer/conductor/pianist (West Side Story, Peter Pan, Mass, On the Town, Candide, Wonderful Town, etc.)  "Songs for Mothers and Those They Love" will be the premier concert of  American Songbook Concerts (501(c)(3) status in process).    Several of Cleveland’s most acclaimed singers from musical theatre and cabaret perform songs (standards, Broadway, folk, etc.) that every mother and their families will probably know, and definitely appreciate and embrace.  A reception at the church will follow to meet the cast and musicians.   ASC's mission is to celebrate the American Songbook, to preserve this musical treasury, and to foster it for future generations through concerts and workshops.  We define the American Songbook as any song with both a recognizable melody and meaningful lyrics written by Americans, from the past as well as well as contemporary, and of any genre (e.g. standards, Broadway, rock ‘n roll, folk, gospel, film, jazz, country, rhythm & blues, patriotic, etc.)  PLEASE SUPPORT US.  Michael Estwanik, Founder

Dear   Supporters, thanks to the 41 of you we have NOW raised $3780 of our  needed  $5000 goal.  That is awesome - an average of $92 per donor.  WE  are so  grateful.  But we still need to raise $1525 before Friday, so  if  you  have friends that you know would support us if you mentioned  that  our  Mother's Day Concert will include songs about Motherhood by  those  four  guys in the photo to the left. Plus Irving Berlin, Carole  King,  The  Gershwins, Simon & Garfunkel, Stephen Sondheim, Bob  Dylan,  Rodgers  & Hammerstein, Tom Waits, etc. maybe that would get  their  attention,  right?  And if we raise a little more than our goal,  we can  place some  last-minute ads to boost our ticket sales as our  six  performers deserve.  Or maybe you can scrape together a bit more   yourselves to help us  reach our goal.  Every $ helps.  Thanks so much,   Michael Estwanik and  our Board of Directors.
