About Sherry Davis

Welcome! My name is Sherry Davis and I'm a Music Heritage Preservationist (aka historian, social scientist, musician, cultural strategist, communications designer and creative!)

I began my authorship of The Chronicles of a Modern-Day Mozartian as a vehicle to encourage a broader appreciation and understanding of W.A. Mozart's life and music. I wanted to re-imagine the way in which Mozart was communicated, shared and defined by a public familiar with his name primarily through stigma and mythology.

Often using my own experiences as a conduit, I've filled its pages with articles designed to inform, inspire and connect Mozart's audiences around the world. Exclusive content, fan projects, contests and preservation initiatives abound! In a saturated entertainment landscape, our musical past is endangered. My goal is to create awareness of Mozart's musical, historical and cultural significance to cultivate audience sustainability. 

The Chronicles is one of the only platforms providing an informational, scholarly and human interest driven narrative about Mozart's history through the contemporary scope of fandom, industry, popular culture, heritage tourism and preservation. It is consulted by educators, professionals and enthusiasts all over the world for its engaging narrative, historical insight and resource clearinghouse. 

Since its launch in celebration of Mozart's 250th birthday, I've never monetized The Chronicles through subscription fees, paywalls, ads or affiliate marketing. Readers have had access to what I've created for public consumption at no cost, but now I'm asking that my readership arrive at this content in a financially supporting role.

For only $5/month, you can become an active subscriber of The Chronicles via Patreon. You'll be part of a private community where you'll enjoy exclusive content like early access updates and have the opportunity to engage in discussions with me about the future of The Chronicles. This isn’t a donation. It’s a transaction, an investment. And it represents our commitment to each other. You want to see me grow and succeed, and I want to bring you along on the journey so that you can enjoy the benefits of my work! 

This income stream will have a direct impact in offsetting the costs of operating The Chronicles such as website hosting and domain fees and by providing compensation for the time I spend on research, writing, project management, social media and website maintenance. Like other self-employed creators, movers and shakers, I need recurring income to fill in the gaps between paid and unpaid hustle in order to make a living from my passion. 

Mozart depended on aristocratic patrons for a significant part of his life, but was determined to become one of the first independent artists in history despite its immense financial burden. Although a few centuries have passed since his lifetime, the financial precarity of pursuing an independent music career remains a substantial obstacle today. And just as you'd rally around Mozart in collective patronage, I'm asking you to become patrons to help power my path.
