CommonTime Composition: April 2023
Apr 04, 2023 | The CommonTime Team

Arts Lovers,

Spring is in the air, full of song, colors and joy. It’s time for rebirth and new ideas.

Here in Stuttgart the daffodils are in bloom and nature’s palette offers us an aesthetic array of possibilities. CommonTime’s palette has a plethora of great upcoming events, summer courses, lessons, and languages to help you travel the world from wherever you are.

Keep your eyes on our events page for great opportunities to engage in arts experiences or offer them!

Let’s compose a great piece together with the arts! This is your website and community, share it widely, bring your arts, celebrate with your friends, and connect with cultures.

See you soon, and often, on CommonTime.

Christine Matovich  and  Michael Skillern

          Founder                   Co-Founder

How do you bring the world together on one stage? The Orchester der Kulturen can show you how! On April 15th, the Orchester der Kulturen is premiering a concert video chronicling the deeply moving “Sinfonie Unseres Lebens,” or “Symphony of our Lives.” This groundbreaking genre bending masterpiece features refugee musicians from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. During this special stream, Maestro Adrian Werum will be taking questions in the chat!

The Orchester der Kulturen has recently become a CommonTime streaming partner! You can catch CommonTime-exclusive streams of their performances, behind-the-scenes videos, and more!

CommonTime will launch its WeFunder investment campaign on Friday, April 14, 2023.  https://wefunder.com/commontime.1/

Before the public launch, we invite you, our core stakeholders and dream makers, to become an owner in CommonTime!

Thanks to your love of the arts and arts education and your faith in CommonTime we are experiencing growth to help us continue our mission to provide access to arts and arts education around the world.  

We’re about to launch a Community Round – what does that mean? This means we’re letting our customers and biggest supporters become investors in CommonTime for a minimum investment of $100. We decided to host a Community Round for CommonTime on Wefunder to share the upside of our success with the people who know us best: our family, friends, and our CommonTime community. You are our foundation. 

We're inviting you to become an investor in CommonTime, before we open this investing round to the public we want to give you priority access. Rather than sharing the fruits of our growth with only a small group of millionaire investors, we want to give our customers a share of what they believe in: the arts and arts education.

Our Community Round is about building a network of people who share our mission and values. The great thing about Wefunder is that it allows anyone—whether or not they’re an accredited investor—to become an angel investor in our company.
