“Tickets are now on sale for the GEMS Fifth Anniversary Gala Reception and Sinfonia New York's performance of The Art & Ecstasy of the Chaconne on Thursday, October 4 at 7:30 pm!  …

The program is extremely varied and accessible for "non-early-music aficionados" so invite your friends and make a fun evening out of it. The show is a visual/musical history of the chaconne, from its origins as a wild and sacrilegious street dance in Spain to its apotheosis in the Chaconne from Bach's Partita in D minor for unaccompanied violin. Music, dance, and song take us on a tour through Europe via Spain, Italy, England, France and Germany.

The evening continues with a gala reception celebrating GEMS' first five years of championing performances of early music throughout NYC and beyond. …”
