I believe there is a need for a sponsoring organization that will support the work of great creative professional musicians. An organization in which decisions are made with the utmost professionalism, in consultation with the professional musicians that play the music.
Music reflects our times. Music develops historically, following a historical timeline. It informs as it entertains. By performing and educating our audiences about the music of different cultures throughout the ages, we enable greater sensitivity and are better equipped to live full, meaningful lives as informed citizens of the world.
To engender and reinforce cross-cultural understanding, and the subsequent peaceful co-habitation across the human species, it is our responsibility to perform the musics of diverse cultures and different periods of history…from ancient times and up to the present. Our collaborations will perform music of many different cultures and from different periods of history, comparing and contrasting, and sometimes hybridizing and synthesizing new forms that combine the best of the varied cultures and styles of music into new art forms. We will create and re-create, improvise and experiment, enact and record and encourage lively conversation.
We will always reach out to other composers & performers & artists & business people to encourage, incubate and support collaborations and projects and support those who support these goals.
The need for great music performances is greater than ever. People need to be inspired. Students need to see professional musicians performing, as this shows them the results of hard, focused practicing & good instruction.
There are thousands of young children across the New England states; Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut who's school districts can't afford to bring great professional lecture-demonstrations or concerts that will inspire and educate.
