Dear Friends of the Educational Bridge Project,
We have just completed our largest and most ambitious festival, measured by the number of participants, events, venues, new contacts, and the outpourings of appreciation. More than two hundred people participated, and more than twenty events took place over a period of only sixteen days.
We are most proud of the fact that many of these participants who had met on previous festivals, met again. Thus, young American composers Matt Van Brink and Ramon Castillo hosted young composers from St. Petersburg back in 2001. Years later, the former students reunited as teachers and recognized composers.
International collaboration in culture and education is the key to the Educational Bridge Project. As in the past, Americans shared concert stages with Russian musicians, and again, Boston professors worked with Russian students.
Despite the euphoria of our successes, we must face the reality of our circumstances in the economic downturn. In order to continue creating these incredible festivals, we are compelled to ask for your financial support. Please help us to meet our goal.
The Educational Bridge Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies on the support of individuals, corporations, and foundations.
Through the generosity of our supporters we are able to present American-Russian annual festivals, “Days of Russian Culture in America” and “Days of American Culture in Russia.”
Your time, energy and efforts are what we need at the Educational Bridge Project. Come and volunteer for us during any of the festivals’ stages – planning, development, or implementation.
Over the years we have had many wonderful people working as volunteers. They helped to organize festivals events, translate from one language to another, host dinners for our Russian and American guests, take them around the city for tours and excursions, and much more.
A special thanks to all of our volunteers:
