#GivingTuesday 2016 is here: please make a money contribution to Musicians For Musicians (MFM) on New York’s first ever statewide day of giving!
None of MFM’s forthcoming activities will be possible without your help. You are: the music loving public, music business people, the media, music companies, politicians who care for musicians rights AND the musicians who haven’t joined MFM yet. Without your support, it would be impossible for MFM to continue serving her members and the community both near and far in this way. We’re counting on you to take MFM to an higher level as an organization empowering musicians and fighting for their rights.
Hello, YOU are invited to
MFM’s “Making Music Is A Profession” Mixer!
We’re going to celebrate the start of two campaigns with you: 1.) the free 6 months membership and 2.) our #MakingMusicIsAProfession activism campaign on social media.

Review By Dawoud Kringle
Arc Welding, an experimental improvisational a cappella ensemble with Constance Cooper, Beth Griffith, and Lauren Lee, presented a performance at C.O.M.A., at ABC No Rio.
As Cooper – who’s a member of MFM – introduced the project and performance, the others began vocalizing. It became clear immediately that this was not to be a cappella performance with songs and arrangements. The vocalizing included a wide variety of harmonies, throat singing, sounds and ambient noises.
