Donate to make Lesbian and Gay Band Association's first commissioned work a reality

The Lesbian and Gay Band Association (LGBA) is about to make history - again. We want you to be part of it.

At LGBA's 30th Anniversary conference in Dallas, we will premiere our first commissioned composition. This piece - composed by Michael Markowski will celebrate 30 years of growth and accomplishment. It will also further our mission of music, visibility and pride for years to come.

"Commissioned by the Lesbian and Gay Band Association for its 30th Anniversary" will be printed at the top of every part. Can you imagine how powerful that will be? To be sold through music publishers, this piece will be distributed world-wide and played by numerous schools and community bands. It will educate many but more importantly console and empower isolated LGBT youth.

Since early this year, LGBA has been quietly raising funds to pay for the commission. Our goal is $7,500. Thanks to a handful of generous individuals, we have raised $5,650 towards that goal.

See why one donor loves band and chose to be a lead donor for this project:

We hope you love band as much as Steve.

We need to raise the remaining $1,850 by the end of June to fully pay for this commission. We hope you will consider giving $25, $50 or any amount you can afford. Click here to give now.

If you give $100 or more, you get invited to a special reception with the composer in Dallas. Donors who give $250 or more will also receive a signed copy of the score, a recording of its inaugural performance, significant recognition at the concert and featured on the LGBA website. To give, please click here:

For 30 years, we have spread music, visibility and pride to more than 40 cities in north America, Europe and Australia. Please join LGBA in further spreading music, visibility and pride to communities throughout the world for years by donating to this campaign.
