Concerts and Happenings in the New York Area

Here is a list of the major venues and sponsoring organizations for early music events in the greater New York Metropolitan area, together with their websites, which provide concert schedules, contact and ticket information. Comments, suggestions and corrections are always welcome! Contact webmaster Carol Scafati.

GemsGOTHAM EARLY MUSIC SCENE (GEMS) is dedicated to the promotion and advancement of early music in New York City and serves professional and amateur performers and ensembles, church organizations, audiences and enthusiasts. Get on their mailing list and receive On the Scene which features current New York performances of early music. Call: 212-866-0468 or E-mail.

Save the Date: NYRG Music Director and WRG Coach, Deborah Booth will perform at a GEMS Concert on October 5, 2017 with Louise Shulman. Location is The Chapel at St. Bartholomew's Church, 50th Street and Park Avenue at 1:15 PM - 2:00 PM; tickets are free and no reservations are required. This program offers some of Telemann's lesser known and later works from Der getreue Music-Meister (Germany's first music periodical) and also the 1752 print of bolder and more original duo pieces which survived in the Civico Museo Bibliografico Musicale in Bologna. These later "flute" duets have been seriously neglected, given the popularity of his well-loved Opus 2 pieces. We will also perform one of the Sonatas in Canon from Opus 5.

Visit the new online homes for Salon/Sanctuary Concerts maintained by Artistic Director Jessica Gould, GEMS Live!, Nina Stern's educational program S'Cool Sounds, and Sinfonia New York created by Artistic Director Christine Gummere.

nearsayGEMS has also subscribed to a new web-based event listing service called Nearsay. They have a good, useful site that keeps people informed about events of interest in their own neighborhoods. Pay them a visit, and look for GEMS presence in Arts & Culture, Night Life, and Upper West Side.
