    This project has been successfully funded

Fundraising for recording and editing of a CD by Big Band Junior. The surplus of raised funds will be donated to the "Portuguese Association of Charcot Marie Tooth".

It is part of the Big Band Júnior's mission to provide its students the opportunity of experiencing some of the moments that inhabit a professional musician's life. For that reason, in July 2016, the band will be recording a CD in a professional studio. For most of these young musicians, it will be their first time in a professional recording studio. We are sure that, for some of them, it will be a dream fulfilled and a 'giant step' in their lives.

We are confident that this fundraising campaign will exceed its goal. For that reason, the BBJ will donate the surplus of the funds to the Associação Portuguesa de Charcot Marie Tooth (APCMT), founded by Diogo Lopes, pianist at the BBJ

The APCMT goal is to inform and raise awareness among the general population, and among the medical community, about the degenerative disease Charcot Marie Tooth (CMT). The funds raised through this crowdfunding campaign will be applied in the CMT National Symposium and in the two programs: "CMT - Informing to raise awareness and to educate" and "CMT - Informing to Guide". These two programs support the need of raising awareness about CMT and its inherent problems, among the civil society and the science and medical communities, respectively.

As a generous gesture of incentive towards the Big Band Júnior's work, and of solidarity towards the APCMT, the musicians Mário Delgado, Mário Laginha, João Paulo Esteves da Silva, Gonçalo Marques and Maria João have accepted our invitation to perform in the recordings of this CD.

About the author

The Big Band Junior (BBJ) is a jazz orchestra-school with 15 to 20 musicians between 12 and 17 years old. Born in October 2010, it was created through a partnership between Centro Cultural de Belém, Hot Clube de Portugal and Orelha Viva.

The mission of the BBJ is to raise the interest for jazz among young musicians, providing experience and training to its students as musicians in a jazz orchestra and giving them the opportunity to experience moments that are usually part of the life of a professional musician.

The BBJ has weekly rehearsals at the Hot Clube de Portugal Jazz School. In each academic year the orchestra has a season of at least 3 concerts at the Centro Cultural de Belém.

The Orchestra-School Big Band Junior has as artistic directors Alexandra Ávila Trindade and João Godinho, and as musical and pedagogical director and conductor Claus Nymark. The orchestra musicians are:

  •  Frederico Araújo, clarinet, 14 years old
  • Artur Leitão, alto saxophone, 16 years old
  •  Francisco Lomba, alto saxophone, 14 years old
  • Luz Fonseca, alto saxophone, 16 years old
  • Ricardo Neto, alto saxophone 13 years old
  • Sofia Sena, tenor saxophone, 14 years old
  • Thomas Childs, trumpet, 15 years old
  •  Tomás Ferreira, trombone, 15 years old
  •  Diogo Lopes, piano, 16 years old
  • José Manuel Cavaco, piano, 13 years old
  • João Pedro Lobo, doublebass, 15 years old
  • Afonso Alves, drums, 16 years old
  • João Ribeiro, drums, 17 years old
  • Matilde Madeira Lopes, voice, 15 years old
  • For the CD recording, BBJ invited some of its former musicians:
  • Bernardo Tinoco, alto saxophone
  • Francisco Gomes, piano
  • Hugo Henriques, voice

In a gesture of great generosity, to encourage the work of the BBJ and in solidarity with APCMT, musicians Mário Delgado, Mário Laginha, João Paulo Esteves da Silva, Gonçalo Marques e Maria João accepted our invitation to participate in the recording of this CD!

The BBJ repertoire for this disc includes compositions by Claus Nymark, Mário Laginha, João Godinho, Duke Ellington, Lee Morgan, Joe Zawinul, Charles Mingus, Vince Guaraldi, among others.

    Mensagem de agradecimento

    Queridos apoiantes da nossa campanha para gravação e edição do 2º CD da Big Band Júnior (BBJ), em parceria com a Associação Portuguesa de Charcot-Marie-Tooth.

    É com muita alegria que vimos agradecer a todos o apoio que deram a esta campanha e que tornou possível a concretização de mais um marco no percurso da BBJ e dos jovens músicos que compõem a orquestra. É incrível perceber que a Big Band Júnior já tem uma família tão alargada e foi fantástico poder contar com ela para realizar mais uma etapa fundamental na vida desta Orquestra-Escola.

    Estamos também muito contentes por termos conseguido superar o valor solicitado e doar o valor remanescente à Associação Portuguesa de Charcot Marie Tooth (APCMT), fundada pelo Diogo Lopes, pianista da BBJ.

    O CD vai chamar-se "A Lua Partida ao Meio", título homónimo do tema de Mário Laginha e Maria João. Este tema terá duas versões neste CD, uma cantada pela voz da BBJ Matilde Lopes e outra cantada pela Maria João. O "Making Of" do CD feito pela Maria Bicker já está no ar. Vejam aqui: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7I8tmGbInI!"

    Relembramos que o lançamento do CD está previsto para 17 de dezembro de 2016, aquando do concerto da BBJ no Pequeno Auditório do CCB.

    A entrega das recompensas deverá ser feita também durante o mês de dezembro. Voltaremos a entrar em contacto convosco mais próximo dessa altura para combinarmos as entregas.

    Mais uma vez, OBRIGADO a todos!

    Campanha de crowdfunding da Big Band Júnior quase a terminar.

    Olá a todos,

    Faltam menos de 20 horas para terminar a campanha de crowdfunding para a edição do nosso segundo CD, "A lua partida ao meio". Este trabalho conta com a participação de Maria João, Mário Laginha, João Paulo Esteves da Silva, Mário Delgado e Gonçalo Marques. O excedente do valor angariado irá reverter a favor da Associação Portuguesa de Charcot Marie-Tooth. Estamos cada vez mais perto de ver este sonho tornado realidade, mas ainda falta alcançar cerca de 30% do nosso objetivo. Temos de o atingir até às 18 horas de amanhã (28 de Julho).

    Passem a palavra e partilhem este link http://ppl.com.pt/pt/prj/cd-big-band-junior

    MUITO OBRIGADO!!

    Olá a todos!

    Queremos antes de mais agradecer o vosso apoio nesta campanha de crowdfing para a gravação do CD da Big Band Júnior e informar que já ultrapassámos 20% do nosso objetivo! A campanha termina no dia 28 de Julho e uma vez que o PPL funciona com um modelo de "tudo ou nada" é imperativo chegar aos 100% para recebermos efetivamente o apoio financeiro que necessitamos.

    Relembramos que o valor em causa são 5000 euros e que o excedente angariado reverte a favor da Associação Portuguesa de Charcot Marie Tooth. A APCMT foi fundada por Diogo Lopes, pianista da BBJ e tem como objetivo sensibilizar a população em geral e a classe médica para esta doença degenerativa.

    Faltam poucos dias até ao final da campanha e ainda temos um longo caminho a percorrer. Por esse motivo, vimos mais uma vez solicitar a vossa ajuda para que esta causa seja do conhecimento de mais e mais pessoas

    Cada um de nós pode fazer o seguinte:

    - partilhar os posts referentes à campanha de Crowdfunding que a Big Band Júnior coloca diariamente na sua página de Facebook em www.facebook.com/bigbandjunior

    - partilhar noutras redes sociais (twitter, google+, instagram, etc) a página da campanha do PPL http://ppl.com.pt/pt/prj/cd-big-band-junior e os vídeos alusivos à campanha que estão na página de YouTube da BBJ, em: https://www.youtube.com/BigBandJr

    - partilhar a paixão por esta causa com um familiar, amigo ou colega da forma que considerem mais apropriada.

    Mais uma vez, MUITO OBRIGADO!!
