Scarlet- A New Musical by Michelle Horgen

My talented friend, Michelle Horgen, has spent the last few months writing a musical! I'm obviously very proud of her. She's been playing the piano since she was a little girl, and my guess is she's been singing even longer. Not to mention she writes some of the most beautiful music I've had the privilege to hear. We've been friends since high school- and will be forever.  Michelle was riding with me when I had my very first car accident, and she was standing beside me when I graduated from high school. So, of course, it's important to me to be able to stand beside her as she pushes forwarded with her Kickstarter fundraiser for her musical, Scarlet
The campaign is just over the 50% mark and they could really use a push to help them reach their goal of $25,000 in the next few days. As many of you know, even the smallest contribution can help. So, I invite you to check out the Kickstarter fundraiser, and if you think it's something you'd like to support... please, contribute.  You can find updated information on the Kickstarter site. And, as always, any support is truly appreciated.
Here is an additional video clip with an excerpt of Comfort Ye.  

I graduated from Portland State University with a BA in vocal performance, later followed by a MEd in music education and a MM in conducting. I have played piano since I was five, and have performed, accompanied and arranged professionally for the past 20 yrs. I have taught high school for 15 yrs, as well as a handful of college courses, during which time I have directed/music directed more than 30 musicals and plays. My husband Garen is a professional trumpeter and conductor so music permeates our lives 24-7. Our Saint Bernard Clara and German Shepherd Bollo are our spoiled furry children. I can't resist a good (bad) pun, and I drink too much diet coke. www.scarlettheforbiddenstory.com
