We are a not-for-profit artist booking agency specializing in early music and represent a roster of New York City's world-class ensembles. Each has a distinguished record of performance including reviews in major newspapers, recordings, tours, and prizes at major competitions. For the next two booking seasons we are featuring the GEMS Octagon -- eight programs selected by a panel of distinguished presenters in July 2011, which include programs by four ensembles new to our roster.
We made our official debut at the 51st Annual Conference of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) in January 2008 at the New York Hilton Hotel. We regularly exhibit at regional conferences and Chamber Music America (CMA). We sponsor an annual showcase in conjunction with the APAP conference in New York each January, and advertise in Early Music America Magazine, Chamber Music America Magazine, Musical America and Inside Arts.
The ensembles on our roster are available for booking for the 2012-2013 season and beyond. A wide variety of touring programs are available, in all genres of early music.
