We hope that you consider joining in the celebration of Mr. Watkins’ passion and life’s work, by honoring his dedication to music education by donating to the Alfred Watkins Commission Fund. The Fund will support the costs for the creation of a commissioned piece of work and will be showcased in May 2014 at the Cobb Wind Symphony Concert in Marietta, GA, where Watkins was a co-founder; as well as the 2015 Music for All National Festival Honor Band of America Concert.
All donations are needed to ensure this project comes to fruition to honor Mr. Watkins’ retirement as Director of Bands at Lassiter High School. The fund needs to raise more than $20,000 in order to reach its goal. Donors will receive donor benefits for their contributions, which include:
• Donors who give $1,000+ will be listed in the score and in the commemorative program for the premier concert and will receive an autographed photo of the composer and Alfred.
• Donors who give $500-$999, will be listed in the score and in the commemorative program for the premier concert.
• Donors who give $499 or below, will be listed in the commemorative program for the premier concert.
