Dear Friends and Collective Wisdom,

Most of you know me from my stream of press releases and information
about the artists I represent.  Today, I'm writing to ask for your help
in connection with a unique event: the Iraq Summer Performing Arts Academy
in Erbil, Northern Iraq, July 14 - 22, 2007.

American Voices (http://www.americanvoices.org/), a not-for-profit
organization based in Houston, is partnering with the U.S.  State
Department, the U.S.  Embassy in Baghdad and the Iraqi Ministries
of Culture in Baghdad and Kurdistan to create a Summer study program
for Iraq's young musicians and dancers and its established cultural
institutions.  including the School of Music and Dance in Baghdad,
the Iraq National Symphony Orchestras and the Orchestras of Erbil and
Suleimaniya, the Iraq National Folk Dancing Ensemble and the Institutes
of Fine Arts of Erbil, Kirkuk and Suleimaniya.

This will reach approximately 250 Iraqis, with the emphasis on young
people aged 14 to 25.  A faculty of ten cultural specialists from the
U.S.  will introduce music and dance students from throughout the country
to Jazz, Broadway, Hip Hop and other uniquely American performing arts.

In addition to the educational elements of this program, three gala
concert evenings on July 17, 21 and 22 will culminate in all of Iraq's
three orchestras united for the first time on one stage.

This is where I'm asking for your help.  Would any of you be able to
donate or give us some ideas of where we could get donations of the
following scores and parts:

Orchestra

Bach - Concerto in d for 2 violins and orchestra  
Bach - Brandenburg Concerti 
Mozart - Symphonies and Overtures
Haydn - Symphonies 
Beethoven - any orchestral works
Jazz/Broadway in strings arrangements 
Any Ragtime for Strings 
Vivaldi - Concerti Grossi

Handel - Concerti Grossi
Handel - Water Music
Beethoven - Ode to Joy in arrangement for symphony Orchestra

Chamber Music

Any standard rep quintets or trios (especially Haydn & Mozart)

There have been some specific requests by the Iraq National Symphony=
 Orchestra:

- score & orchestral parts for Stravinsky's "Firebird Suite" 	
- music for Brass Quartet (Trumpet-Horn-Trombone-Tuba) 	
- oboe music: 	

1. Tomaso Albinoni (Oboe concerto & string in D major - Op. 7 No. 6).
2. Tomaso Albinoni (Oboe concerto & string in D minor Op. 9 No. 2). 
3. Alessandro Marcello (Oboe concerto & string in C minor).

Also, simplified arrangements of other composers

If you can help with any of these items, please contact me at

will be a tremendous gesture of good will toward the people of Iraq.

Many thanks and all good wishes,
