HELP US REACH OUT
We're fortunate to have so much early music activity in New York: venerable and emerging ensembles, dedicated presenters, stellar artists, effective educational programs. But all of it will diminish, if not collapse, if the audience isn't there.
One of the specific objectives of our Fifth Anniversary celebrations is to introduce new patrons to our beloved genre. That's why we're kicking things off on October 4th with a repeat of our engaging "Art & Ecstasy of the Chaconne" program. It's a varied, entertaining, astonishing, enriching evening-- with music, song, and dance-- and a strong intellectual and thematic underpinning. No, it probably won't appeal to the typical NASCAR or NFL fan, but we're hoping it will attract folks who enjoy "mainstream" opera, symphonic repertoire, chamber music, world music, jazz...
WE NEED YOUR HELP. Invite a friend or two to join you at this concert. The ticket price ($40) is less than that of an obstructed-view seat at the Met. We'll have a large array of literature and brochures from other early music ensembles and presenters on hand so that those who get hooked will know where to go to enjoy and support the work of our colleagues in the coming season.
Tickets are on sale now. But, as you've heard many times before, "the income from ticket sales does not cover the cost of presenting live classical music." Please consider purchasing tickets to the gala reception ($125 includes concert ticket) or becoming a Sponsor of our 5th anniversary at the Sapphire ($500) to Diamond level ($10,000). Sponsorships include two tickets to the concert and gala. Be a GEM! Order tickets here.
Thank you! We hope to see you there.
