Sibley East Educational Project

For the first time in our history, we will be partnering with the Sibley East Middle/High School Music Department to present an exceptional educational program for its students. This project is unique because it provides the students the rare opportunity to learn directly from some of the America’s, and the world’s, best up-and-coming talent in the Historical Performance field.

Our Project will

  1. Provide an interactive Performance/Lecture session for the students which will

    • introduce the students to Baroque music

    • allow the students to see and hear replica Baroque instruments

    • introduce the students to important figures from the Baroque era

  2. Provide selected students an opportunity to learn directly from our NY Artists in three Masterclass sessions

  3. Afford students the option to observe our rehearsals; this is a rare opportunity for students to see how professional musicians rehearse

You can read the full project proposal here.
