You are invited to help with a specific funding need for CTI:
Our stateside main speakers are tired. They've each seen about 150,000 trailer miles and their share of some 3,000 performances. They've helped us through 8 summers as training systems and have endured 9 years of fulltime team rehearsals. Not bad for their second life (they were donated to us in 2006 having previously been used for an unknown amount of time.) But it is time for us to retire them and treat our U.S. audiences to the smoother sound (and gentler aesthetic impact) of newer technology.
We are planning to replace our 4 Mackie 1530z speakers (which don't look nearly as nice as the picture below at this point) with QSC K12 mains and KW181 subwoofers:
The total cost for this upgrade will be about $9,000.
An anonymous donor has put up $4,000 in matching funds towards this project, which means we only need to raise about half of the cost. But we still need $4,000 in contributions to claim the $4,000 in matching funds!
If you'd like to contribute to this project, you can do so online
, or by sending a check to our office
with the note "Speaker Project." And consider passing this along to a friend who might share an interest in this kind of a project.
Thanks for considering this - we hope you get to hear these speakers in person at a CTI event sometime soon!
