Original Music – Fundraiser

Original Music Fundraiser


There’s a group of talented individuals that help make up Workshop13. Some are artists, and musicians, while others have business and organizational skills. To have a successful cultural center it takes people with different backgrounds who work countless hours volunteering their time, who are passionate about the arts, and whose only reward is to hopefully see their efforts resulting in a stronger community.

For a non-profit business, fundraising is a major component. We wanted to create a fundraiser that encompasses the arts – music, writing, videography – and touches the heart. That’s why we are so excited about this fundraiser as it demonstrates the tremendous talents of so many.  The musicians from the Workshop13’s Grand Hall have produced an amazing CD filled with original works!  We’re sure these tracks will bring back memories that’ll make you smile and perhaps shed a tear.

Each song can be downloaded for free but we encourage you to make a donation while on our site to show appreciation for the talented artists who created these treasures. Remember all donations are tax deductible and will help us to continue providing cultural arts to our community.

The song, written by Billy Simons and Damien Goudreau, commemorates those who have served our country and encourages people to honor the commitment and sacrifices made by those in our armed services. This song was not written in response to recent events or protests, nor was it intended to be polarizing or controversial. Simply put, this was written to say Thank You to all of those who have served. The “Hat’s Off” song is performed by Damien Goudreau, and the video was produced by local artist and founder of Workshop13, Roc Goudreau. The video features locations and faces that will be familiar to many Ware residents.

Proceeds from the sale of this CD and donations made will benefit the veteran-focused Arts Healing Hearts initiative at Workshop13, as well as other community-based art programs. Visit workshop13.org for more information.
