Welcome to the home page of our fifth annual series of sampler
concerts, showcasing the richness of New York's early music performing
community. This is your chance to preview the offerings of 8 of the
City's finest ensembles in three venues -- West Side, East Side, and Downtown.
The Saturday evening concert will feature an unusual demonstration of
the relationship between Galileo's scientific work and his musical
involvements, and will end with a gala reception.
Please join us!
