Happy Summer!  We hope that you are all able to keep relatively cool in this summer heat.

Baroque Music Workshop for Kids
Alexandra Dunbar’s “World of the Harpsichord” early music program for kids still has spaces available.  The workshop is located in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan, and will take place August 13-16, 10am - 2pm each day and is open to children 6 and older.  Alexandra will be joined by Lisa Terry, Marina Fragoulis, and Nina Stern in leading an exploratory musical workshop for the participants.  In addition, full scholarships are available thanks to the S’Cool Sounds education program!  If you know of a child who plays a musical instrument and would be interested in exploring some lesser-known instruments, check out the website for more info about the workshop and registration.

4 Concerts of Baroque Music
The 4x4 Festival presents concerts of baroque music showcasing works by well-known composers such as J.S. Bach, G.F. Handel and Henry Purcell while shedding light on some of their unjustly neglected contemporaries. Participating musicians include the violinist Robert Mealy, soprano Jolle Greenleaf, and many of New York’s finest musicians of this repertoire. The project is directed by Avi Stein who teaches at the Juilliard School, Yale University and the Longy School and is the director of music at St. Matthew & St.Timothy Church, and the music director of OperaOmnia.
