We made it! We matched the $10,000 challenge grant offered by an anonymous donor through the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. Thanks to everyone who contributed... we'll be posting the list of the angels shortly!
There are still projects needing additional funding-- including our April 20th "Codex Trujillo del Peru" project with Tom Zajac and Nell Snaidas, and the tour of The Play of Daniel in June in CT and MA. Your donations are never too late!
Won't you please join the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Florence Gould Foundation, the Reed Foundation, and our other generous donors by making a contribution so that we may continue to provide important services at affordable prices.
We maintain mailing lists, email lists, a website, and copy writing services that are critical to publicizing the City's wealth of early music activity.These services have been engaged by over 140 organizations, including the City's small medieval and Renaissance ensembles, baroque and classical orchestras, and major presenters such as The Frick Collection, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Carnegie Hall.
We provide "front of house" services including ticket sales, credit card processing, and ushering to the many musical groups who present their own concerts and series.

SPECIAL LIMITED OFFER
A recording to be cherished by all early music lovers is
now available at GEMS. The Green Mountain Project (GMP), under the
direction of Scott Metcalfe and Jolle Greenleaf, mounted one of the six
productions in New York this season of the magnificant Vespers of 1610 by
Claudio Monteverdi. Their performance at the Church of St. Mary the
Virgin thrilled the huge overflow crowd and received a rare rave
review from James Oestreich in The New York Times: "The
performance was quite simply terrific." Consequently, a
beautiful two-disc limited edition CD album was
created from the professional recording made at the concert by 6-time Grammy
Award winning engineer Marc J. Aubort of Elite Recordings LLC. The
Project has offered GEMS 50 copies of the CD set, each packaged with
the elegant large-format program book distributed at the concert, for use
as a gift for our supporters.
Program Book Cover
You may have a copy
of the recording and book for a donation of $50, to be
divided equally between GEMS and the GMP. Your generosity will both
GEMS with its work and help fund the Green Mountain Project's plans for future
while adding an extraordinary recording to your library.
