Dear Audience member,
We hope you enjoyed our recent concert, and thank you so much for visiting our fundraising page!
As you will now know, we are on a huge mission to raise $15,000 for our upcoming CD and DVD recordings in the USA.
We have been offered the unmissable opportunity to record with the beautiful Aeolian Skinner organ at St Andrew's Church, Amarillo TX. The CD will be recorded by the renowned English record label Regent Records (for whom we have recorded all previous CDs), with an eclectic programme including beautiful music by USA composer Craig Phillips and Iain Farrington's wonderful jazz suite, written for us in 2014. The DVD will be recorded and produced locally in the USA and will include favorites such as Bruch's Kol Nidrei.
Contributions will assist with our travel and accommodation for both projects, travel and accommodation for the UK-based Regent Records team for the recording of the CD, recording and production costs for the DVD, and all photography and artwork for both albums.
As a sponsor of Svyati Duo you will automatically receive exclusive downloads, invitations and complimentary copies of both new albums, in addition to our eternal thanks and gratitude!

About Svyati Duo
Since forming Svyati Duo in 2009 Rebecca Hepplewhite (cello) and Julian Collings (organ) have gained international critical acclaim, both for their concert performances and commercial CD releases. Heralded as 'exemplary' performers by Fanfare Magazine, their concert engagements have taken them to venues throughout Europe, the United States of America and Asia.
How the campaign works:
We would love to complete both the CD and DVD projects in 2016-2017, and will undertake as much of the project as we can as soon as possible. Our first priority is the DVD project so it is likely that we will complete this first, whilst continuing to raise funds for the CD project.
Any amount donated, however small, will make an enormous difference. We have added some 'rewards' for those of you wishing to donate specific amounts, but please do not feel that these are the only options available to you! You can make a donation of any amount by clicking on the red 'donate now' button.
We will keep updating this page as our project progresses and will keep you informed of all major developments.Even if we don't raise all the money we need we will make sure both projects go ahead, perhaps just on a longer timescale.
Thank you so much for supporting Svyati Duo!
