The iHearIC concert series was founded in 2009 by Jared Fowler in an effort to bring University of Iowa School of Music students together with artists from the rest of the Iowa City area; "both sides of the river." Together they put on public concerts and fostered a cooperative and collaborative creative community. Since its founding, the series has also been directed by Zach Zubow, Andy Thierauf, and Kassia Lisinski, and has been directed by Carlos Cotallo Solares and Justin K Comer since 2015. Justin began the radio show on the University's radio station, KRUI, in October 2017. 

In Summer 2017, we made a commitment to make sure every artist who performs on an iHearIC concert gets paid. We need to fight back against "for exposure" culture! That's where this Patreon page comes in. We had success with a GoFundMe (gofundme.com/ihearic) last year, where our supporters donated a total of $500 to our cause. The vast majority of that money went directly to performers at the ten concerts we've organized since then, with a small portion going towards concert promotion. Our goal now is to replace the GoFundMe with a steady Patreon, where we can better engage with our supporters and give something back! Please join us in our quest to properly compensate Iowa City artists!

Any amount helps! To show our appreciation, anyone who gives at least $1 a month will get early access to concert videos, before they go up on youtube!
Goals
$42 of $60 per month
This will cover the baseline performers' budget that we set for the 2017-2018 season!
