In order to offer presenters the newest and best touring programs available, GEMS Live! solicited proposals in the summer of 2011 from a wide variety of New York early/chamber music groups. A selection panel met at the end of July 2011 to review all the submissions and selected eight varied programs. The panel consisted of a diverse group of distinguished professionals from within New York as well as outside the City and included presenters of community, college/university and museum concert series.
is now featuring a "jeweled
octagon" of the programs selected by the panel by eight different
ensembles, four of which are entirely new to our roster. Our Senior
Artist Representative, Wendy Redlinger, has or will be in touch soon with presenters around the country to discuss booking one or more of
these new programs for the 2013-2014 season. Each of the programs in the Octagon, as well as the touring programs of the entire GEMS Live! roster, are available for national and international bookings. Contact us
