ORGANIZATION: MONTCLAIR EARLY MUSIC

  • 13 people are interested

Montclair Early Music brings history to life through music. We introduce each music selection with historical background. Our upcoming concert is about women composers beginning with Hildegarde van Bengin from the 12th century. Each of the women composers in our program has a unique story to tell about how she overcame all odds in male dominated societies to create and publish beautiful music. We are looking for someone to write enticing gems about these women for a narrator to read. It would involve doing some research and the ability to extract the essence of their stories and their music. It will include composers from the 12th to the 21st century. If you enjoy delving into history and have a flare for writing, please contact me.

About MONTCLAIR EARLY MUSIC

Location:

153 Park Street, Montclair, NJ 07003, US

Mission Statement

We are musicians with a passion for Medieval and Renaissance music. We provide opportunities for people of all ages, races, and abilities to learn to play and perform music in small groups. We enrich our community with historic family-friendly programs of this rarely performed beautiful music integrating history, art, and music. Our mission extends to enhancing school programs by providing free and low-cost music lessons to under-served children.

Description

We are primarily Recorder and String players with occasional addition of other period instruments and singers. Most people think the recorder is a toy for learning how to play "Hot Cross Buns", unaware that the recorder is an ancient instrument, in many sizes which match vocal ranges. There is so much music written for the recorders that it could hardly be played in a lifetime. We want to share the beauty of this music with others either to learn to play or to enjoy listening to. As an all volunteer organization, we are heavily dependent on volunteers to assist us in areas such as maintaining our music library, applying for grants, writing press releases, and editing videos.
