Guildsingers presents An Afternoon of Stories and Songs!
New York Early Music Consort presents a storytelling event for children ages 6 to 10
Guildsingers, a professional early music consort directed by New York choral conductor David Rentz, presents an interactive performance for children weaving together storytelling and 15th- to 17th-century vocal music. The event features New York children’s author, teacher, and storyteller Adam Gidwitz, reading his new, modernized adaptations of favorite Grimm Brothers folk takes, interspersed with lively medieval and Renaissance songs.
Featured last year on the nationally-syndicated radio program Millenium of Music, and having recently offered well-received performances at Columbia University, the 2007 New York Early Music Celebration, and Music at Holy Trinity, Guildsingers has been praised by concert-goers for both its virtuosic musicianship and its lively and innovative programming. Adam Gidwitz teaches at St. Ann’s School, Brooklyn. His first novel is called The Grimm Saga of Hansel and Gretel.
This performance is part of the Music at Holy Trinity subscription concert series, Stephen Hamilton, artistic director.
