Mission Statement

The Vivaldi Project is a early music string ensemble which through performance and education strives to build relationships with local arts organizations to bring a deeper appreciation for our classical music heritage to diverse metropolitan, rural, and under-served communities.

Description

Praised for its brilliant and expressive playing, The Vivaldi Project, co-directed by Elizabeth Field and Stephanie Vial, is dedicated to presenting innovative programs of Baroque and Classical string repertoire that combine scholarship and performance to both educate and delight audiences. The period instrument ensemble takes its name from the virtuoso violinist and innovative composer Antonio Vivaldi in recognition of his pivotal position between earlier Baroque and later Classical composers.

The Vivaldi Project believes that musical performances are Events. At a Vivaldi Project concert, the audience becomes an essential part of the music-making process.Program notes and remarks from the stage guide the audience through the story being told at each concert. The ensemble welcomes communication with its audience and strives to build relationships with local arts organizations to bring a deeper appreciation for our classical music heritage to diverse metropolitan, rural, and under-served communities.

The Vivaldi Project's educational arm, the Institute for Early Music on Modern Instruments (EMMI) offers professional string players the opportunity to study baroque and classical performance practices using their own modern instruments. The goal is to provide an instrumental vocabulary through which the language of this incredibly rich, varied and complex music can be conveyed effectively on modern instruments.
