My mission and passion as the founding director of Concerto Ensemble, a professional classical chamber orchestra, is to fulfill dreams, inspire and enrich the lives of aspiring musicians by providing opportunities to perform concertos without obstacles or "blood, sweat and tears".
Unlike the traditional processes by which potential performers can perform with an orchestra, through sponsorships and other creative means we eliminate the painstaking auditions and competitions approach that can take many months and years, and allow access to anyone who feels they are up to the task of working with a professional orchestra.
Building on the success of our premier concert that featured 6 young soloists ages 10-18 (please see our video) we're thrilled to extend the opportunity to 9 more participants to perform in our upcoming concert planned for Fall 2012.
This program will identify 9 children from the Greater Boston area music schools and underrepresented communities to perform a concerto movement, in a concert with Concerto Ensemble. Each student will perform one full concerto movement in a program to include 3 full concertos.
Our concerts take place at the magnificent Trinity Episcopal Church, 81 Elm Street in Concord, MA. To help us with the success of this event we've launched an exciting fund drive on the Indiegogo website.
Please visit http://igg.me/p/157776?a=811610 to learn more and get involved.
Supporters of this fund drive can get involved in a very special and specific way: You can nominate your self or someone you know to be one of our concerto soloists in this upcoming concert. Please see details on our Indiegogo web page.
Now more than ever, most arts organizations need support. For many, these are challenging times and are fraught with worry and risk. It is during these times that arts organizations are most likely to be victims of funding cuts.
Concerto Ensemble empowers all of its participants to recognize their potential and realize their dreams. We are proud to bring these opportunities and hope that you will join us in this important undertaking by supporting our artists in the upcoming program.
Cheers and a big Thank You from all of us here at Concerto Ensemble!
