Detroit Voice seeks CD kickstart

May 09, 2012

Clarkston High School’s Detroit Voice is fund raising for its first CD through Kickstarter.com.

“We hope the project will create excitement within our choral program and spur the recordings of other Clarkston choir groups,” says Choir Director Brian Haverkate.

The website helps the group raise funds to record and edit songs, and have them mixed, mastered, and licensed to sell as a CD.

To donate, visit www.kickstarter.com/projects/996652856/help-detroit-voice-record-their-first-a-cappella-a by May 12. Rewards include digital downloads, group photos, and live performances.
