San Diego Foundation ~ Creative Catalyst
2015 Camarada Awarded the Creative Catalyst Grant for 2nd Time
Thank you to the San Diego Foundation and the James Irvine Foundation, for funding through the Creative Catalyst Grant in 2012. Camarada and Joel P. West were among the final 15 non-profit organizations selected to receive funding.
Under the mentorship of Camarada, Joel P. West produced a collaborative album focused on blending his folk style with classical chamber music instruments.
Camarada also produced a music video to highlight one of the pieces from the new album. Joel drew inspiration for this creative work from several landscape points around San Diego.
Back in June 2012, The Tree Ring previewed a beautiful batch of new songs downtown San Diego at Luce Loft. Featuring the classical group Camarada, the new tracks will make up The Tree Ring’s sophomore album, which is being funded in part by The San Diego Foundation/Creative Catalyst Grant. Film maker Destin Cretton was on hand to capture the moment, adding to his amazing collection.
