Alkemie's spirited performances of medieval music are grounded in historical performance practice and fed by our love of experimentation.
Alkemie awarded NYSCA grant!
We are so pleased to announce that we have been awarded a New York State Council for the Arts grant to support our programming in 2021! We are so honored that New York has recognized and chosen to support our work as we continue to find ways to make music and connect with people during these difficult times.
UPCOMING PERFORMANCE DATES
Stay tuned for more - We are announcing performances a month in advance
Livestreamed Friday, April 30 TBC
Share more music with us in 2021
We are thrilled to have finally made it to 2021 - we hope you are, too! This spring we are hard at work editing a beautiful new video of "Sweet Friendship" that will be presented by the Arizona Society for Early Music on March 21 and by Capitol Early Music on May 21. This video will feature period costumes and (hair!) as well as beautiful dances and songs from fifteenth-century France and Italy - we can't wait to share it with you.
Later this spring, we will present a livestreamed concert of music and texts of 12th-century polymath Hildgard von Bingen that explores the interconnections between her medical, cosmological, theological and musical works.
And after that - we plan to start working on a project of medieval protest music, curated and directed by Niccolo.
Check back in for more information about upcoming concerts and events - we hope you can join us for more music over the coming year! In the meantime, we hope you stay safe, healthy, and have the opportunity to listen to some beautiful music.
