What's New at GEMS...

The Sinfonia Players concert TONIGHT has been postponed due to a medical emergency
(though hospitalized, our stricken artist is out of danger and was released earlier today for recuperation).  It is being rescheduled for a date in the fall. Stay tuned!

GEM_5th_logoWe are producing a special 5th anniversary edition of the GEMS Project 2012.  This year the Project will comprise Sinfonia New York's "Art & Ecstasy of the Chaconne" with GEMS Gala Reception on October 4th, and a concert showcasing the 6 finalists in Early Music America's new Baroque Performance Competition.  GEMS will be presenting EMA's competition concert at Corpus Christi Church (home of the venerable Music Before 1800 series) on October 10th at 7:00pm.  The finalists are Agave Baroque, Ostraka, Pallade Musica, The Sebastians, Les Sirènes, and Zweikampf.   More information about the competition is on EMA's website

EMA_logo_webYou won't want to miss hearing the seasoned pros on October 4th, and the hotshot emerging ensembles on the 10th.  Visit our 5th Anniversary page for information and tickets to all events, including special discount subscription packages (coming soon!).
