YOU DID IT! Thank you to everyone who gave to this unique project! We made our goal of $12,500 and we are funded! We will now have music as permanent programming at the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office in Washington, DC. The DC musicians who recorded period music and original material inspired by Clara Barton at the CBMSO will be paid for their music and talents AND you will be able to enjoy it all on a CD or download! Thanks again!
