Did you enjoy watching the video of this year's CWW concert? How about the amazing 2019 video production? If so, please consider donating to this "Fund the Fortress" project. It will allow Wartburg to continue videotaping every CWW production as well as other music concerts and events on campus. Every little bit helps. Please consider sharing this post too!
Thanks for your support.

Did you see Christmas with Wartburg online in December? We want to do that EVERY year, in addition to live performances! As we look to celebrate the 75th year of CWW in fall 2021, we are asking for your help to continue and improve the yearly video production of CWW.

In the past we’ve only been able to afford external production once every four years. With our new Fund the Fortress project, we want to raise $7,500 to purchase entry-level cinema cameras, computer storage, and specialty camera lenses to enable closeup filming of individuals, making a yearly video possible.

When we produce the video ourselves, we own the rights to it and can share it in places like Facebook and YouTube. This expands our audience to the world, allowing us to share the Christmas message with a far greater audience. This is also helpful in recruiting new students, some of whom may have never have been in contact with Wartburg before.
