Thanks for your support.

We completed our 2nd season of Élevé, our 4th season of IndustryNight, started a new series at the Promontory, and collaborated with over 10 new artists and businesses. We added our own coffee blend and diner mug to our merch list, and have several new items on the dock. We were featured in the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune, ScapiMag Podcast, and coming up, the Chamber Music Magazine. We had our first successful fundraiser on GivingTuesday in November, and we more than doubled our Patreon community.

All in all, it's been a good year, and we couldn't have done it without your support. Patreon and donations are vital to our projects and operation. If you'd like to learn more or join our community, click on the links above or feel free to send us a note.
