Make Your Cat a Star!

At this year's Belvedere Festival Luna Nova will be performing Robert Patterson's wind quintet The Cat Menagerie. We want to make it a multimedial presentation by projecting pictures of lots of interesting cats behind the players. We thought it would be fun to use the pictures of cats belonging to friends of Luna Nova. After the Festival we will use the slides and the recording to make a slideshow for YouTube and to put on our iTunes podcast. That way our cats and our music will be out on the Internet for everyone to enjoy.

Here is how it works:
1. We ask that each person just enter one photo. Attach the photo to an email to The file should be named with the first initial and the last name of the sender and it should be a .jpg. John Smith's photo would be jsmith.jpg.

2. As a separate operation we ask that each entrant make a $10 donation to the support of the Belvedere Festival. This can be done with a PayPal account or a credit card here:

3. Entries should be submitted by June 11, 2016.

4. The Cat Menagerie concert will be on Saturday, June 18 at 3:00 p.m. at Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 1720 Peabody. The YouTube version will be online shortly afterward.

Thank you!

Patricia Gray, Luna Nova president
