Raising Money for Breast Cancer Research through Music



What happens when two working moms get together and follow their dream? Perfect harmony. And the growing number of fans of Maureen Rush-Bogutz and Kristin King, who make up the dynamic group called Dichroic Glass (pronounced ‘die-krow-ick’Winking along with their husbands Al Bogutz and Greg King, will tell you that their music touches them in a very special way. Their upbeat edgy-folk style with lots of interwoven harmonies is both soothing and stirring. Maybe because their story goes deeper than the average musical collaboration, or maybe because the women themselves have a real story to tell, whatever it is, when they play, something magical happens.

By day, Maureen is a college counselor, and Kristin is a systems analyst team manager, as well as two moms of young children who live in South Jersey. They started playing and singing together just a few years ago. They met in a church folk group, where they continue to play and sing today. A few years ago, they decided to branch out of their church mold and play at local open mic nights. They also started dabbling in writing and recording together.

In the summer of 2006, Kristin was diagnosed with a fairly rare and aggressive type of breast cancer, and music became an all important outlet for both of them. They started meeting regularly, every Friday, while the kids were in school, for coffee and ‘music therapy’, as they called it. Their style and sound really started to gel, and they decided to launch a project to make a CD.

One song in particular really got them noticed. Maureen wrote ‘Mother’s Day’ a couple of days before Mother’s Day when her twin boys were just 4 years old and driving her bonkers. She just wanted a little time to herself. She stole away for some peace and quiet and the song just emerged…and with Kristin’s wonderful harmony, the song has been gaining popularity ever since. It’s a funny song about motherhood, and a tribute to moms everywhere, who just need a day off!

Another noteworthy song on the CD is ‘No Surrender’, written by Kristin during her long and challenging treatment as her ‘Breast Cancer Warrior Song’. The lyrics were inspired from her own experience as well as the experiences of women from her online support group, and illustrate the spirit of determination to fight for life despite fear and pain. The support group discussion forum a nosurrenderbreastcancerhelp.org continues to provide encouragement and hope to Kristin and many other survivors on a daily basis.

Now that the CD is complete, Maureen and Kristin are looking to make a positive impact by donating the proceeds of their performances and CD sales to breast cancer research and programs. They have partnered with the No Surrender Breast Cancer Foundation, which is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting self-advocacy, education and empowerment for women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, and also contributes directly to the most promising studies to actively support research to find a cure. For more information on this organization, please visit http://www.NoSurrenderBreastCancerHelp.org.

Maureen and Kristin are currently exploring different venues for performing and continuing their efforts to raise money for breast cancer research and programs, from private parties to coffeehouses to pub settings. To check out their performance schedule, book a performance or to purchase a copy of their CD, send an email to dichroicglass@dichroicglassmusic.com, or visit their website at http://www.dichroicglassmusic.com.
