What's New at GEMS...

Juilliard building (72 dpi 3 in)Fans of early music like yourself know of the importance to our field of The Juilliard School's Historical Performance Program.  Here's an opportunity for you to make a significant contribution to the program (no, we're not asking you to match the $20 million gift from Juilliard's Board president that launched it).  Robert Mealy, noted violinist and the new Artistic Director recently emailed us:

"One of the talented students in the Juilliard Historical Performance Program is trying to find some housing in exchange for housework. As you may know, their tuition is free, but they are otherwise obliged to scramble for housing. 
Brandon Labadie, from a large Nebraska family, can't afford to contribute to his housing; recent changes in Federal student loans means that he will have to look for somewhere cheaper or free to live this year.
Brandon is one of the nicest students I've worked with, and would be a model tenant for anyone who had room for a student. If you might know anyone who would have room for a hardworking, extremely responsible, well-mannered student, please let us know."

If you'd like to consider housing Brandon, please write to GEMS here.  We'll forward your inquiry to Robert.

GEM_5th_logo_parchment_background (72dpi_cropped_2.5in)Helping organizations like Juilliard keep our New York early music scene robust is just one of the many activities of Gotham Early Music Scene.  In less than 5 years GEMS has presented 91 New York ensembles in concert; provided services to 146 NYC ensembles and cultural organizations; exhibited at 14 national arts conferences and booked 101 paid nationwide engagements for NYC musical ensembles via our GEMS Live! agency; provided well-paid engagements under Local 802 union contracts to dozens of professional musicians; served thousands of audience members (more than 1,800 of whom received free tickets); helped launch several new ensembles and organizations including 4x4 Baroque, OperaOmnia, Play of Daniel, Quicksilver, Salon/Sanctuary Concerts, Sinfonia New York; and taught more than 920 children the basics of music through our S’Cool Sounds public elementary school teaching programs.  Do come celebrate with us at our October 4th gala, and please consider becoming a sponsor ($500 - $10,000).  We can continue only with your support!  Thank you.
