This looks like a great debut album project - Canadian and NYC-based baritone Jonathan Estabrooks is on his way towards financing an ambitious crossover album with orchestra. His principal collaborator on the project is none other than pianist, conductor, and arranger Oran Eldor, and the album will also feature tracks with Jonathan Antoine and Jennifer Thomas.
Jonathan's Kickstarter pitch:
My acquaintance with Jonathan was when we appeared in the 2004 production of Benjamin Britten's Noye's Fludde for the Benjamin Britten Festival and CBC Television, which was, sadly, the final performance of legendary Canadian conductor and impresario Nicholas Goldschmidt.
Jonathan just passed the 50% funding mark in the last few hours, so best of luck to Jonathan, Oran, and company for their final week of frantic fundraising.
