Notes - May 15, 2013
Thank You For This Season
Thanks for your support of Early Music New York’s 2013-2014 Subscription Concert Series. Your loyal attendance along with your generous contributions to the Early Music Foundation (EM/NY’s fiscal parent) has carried us through another successful season - our thirty-eighth!
We continue to perform in our first home at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine as ‘Artist in Residence.’ It was a pleasure to remount “Istanpitta: A Medieval Dance Band” as our opening presentation last autumn and a “Tudor Christmas” in the Cathedral was another sold-out holiday highlight.
Our spring orchestra performances in the Lincoln Square, First Church of Christ, Scientist, proved to be a grand success – both because of the excellent acoustics and its convenient West Side location.
We look forward to presenting our thirty-ninth season in both locations again – fall: Cathedral of Saint John the Divine and spring: First Church of Christ, Scientist. Please look for dates and programs on our www.EarlyMusicNY.org
website. We’ll be issuing an informative e-notice soon.
