Kickstarter Tuesdays: Aeolians of Oakwood University


Geek Alabama Kickstarter Projects

This week I am promoting a special musical choir based out of Huntsville, AL.  The Aeolians is a world-renown college concert choir.  Each year, around fifty singers devote maximum time and effort towards achieving a standard of musical excellence.  What separates this choir from many others, is their musical repertoire which stretches across all religious and inspirational music genres, sometimes demonstrated in the same piece. This affords the members the opportunity to be not only professional performers, but also Ministers.

The director of the Aeolians, Jason Max Ferdinand, is a visionary who recognizes the potential “future reach” of the choir.  With a grand vision to reach the world with the music of the Aeolians, a bold and innovative move is being made by the choir this Spring.  Their aim is to do a first-ever live recording with a Symphony Orchestra at Oakwood University. A professional orchestra will be brought in along with a professional sound engineer.  They will also be blessed to have special guest performers giving of their talents and their time.  This project is major and will help in continuing the upward momentum that the Aeolians have experienced over the last few years.

The Aeolians of Oakwood University wants to thank you for all of your support over the years.  They want to give you the opportunity of being a part of history.  This concert and their goals that follow CANNOT happen without your help.  The total cost through post-production is $35,000.  They have some of this, but need to raise $15,000 quickly to cover the rest.  They know that this can be done, and are asking you to GIVE to this worthy cause.  As the songwriter said, “You have not, because you ask not.”  And so, they are asking!

As of March 26th, this Kickstarter project has around $3,230 of the $15,000 goal they need to be funded.  And as you know in Kickstarter, a project is not funded until the fundraising goal is reached!  This project only has 20 days left to reach the $15,000 goal.  For a pledge of $10, you will get a Facebook, Twitter, or E-mail shout out thanking you along with our Special Aeolians “Thank You” E-Card.  For a pledge of $25, you will receive a personalized Thank You video from the Aeolians and their director, Maestro Jason Max Ferdinand along with a personalized ringtone.  There are other pledge levels including CD’s, DVD’s, a private sit-in at a rehearsal, sing-along with the Aeolians, and a chance to have The Aeolians come to a location of your choice and perform a concert.
