What's New at GEMS...

GEM_5th_logo_parchment_background (72dpi_cropped_2.5in)Michael and Kay JaffeeGEMS is pleased to pre-announce to our newsletter readers the first "GEMINI" Awards for artistic and administrative contributions to New York's early music community.  The winners of the 2012 awards, chosen by the GEMS Board of Directors, are Michael and Kay Jaffee.  They are being recognized for founding the Waverly Consort in 1964 and for Michael's key role in the founding of Chamber Music America.  The awards will be presented at the gala reception following our "Art & Ecstasy of the Chaconne" concert on October 4, 2012, at the Society of Ethical Culture, Central Park West at 64th Street. More information will be available soon on the GEMS website and in the press.

PaulO'Dette(cropped 72dpi x 2.5in)Also part of our Fifth Anniversary celebrations... GEMS is pleased to announce a new series produced and curated in collaboration with The Americas Society (Sebastian Zubieta, Music Director) and New York's celebrated soprano Nell Snaidas.  Titled "GEMAS," the series will be devoted to early music of the Americas (including Canada).  Our premiere concert features Paul O'Dette performing "¡Jacaras!" 18th-century guitar music from Brazil, at the America's Society on Friday, November 9, at 7 pm.  We're delighted that this first concert has been included in Carnegie Hall's new "Voices from Latin America" series next fall.  Tickets will be available soon.
