Gotham Early Music Scene (GEMS) continues the inaugural season of its Open Gates Project with C3: Countertenors, a Consort, and Continuo, a program featuring a roster of countertenors of color alongside a consort of viols. The concert will also be livestreamed.

Featured artists in this unique program include countertenors Biraj Barkakaty, Wei En Chan, Patrick Dailey, Iván Maria Feliciano (special guest young artist), and Jonathan May, with viol consort composed of Motomi Igarashi, Larry Lipnik, Rosamund Morley, and Pat Neely, with Dongsok Shin on harpsichord. The program includes Gabrieli’s Vieni, Vieni, Himeneo, Handel’s Ombra mai fu, Monteverdi’s Pur ti miro, Cavalli’s Pur Ti Stringo, and consort songs by Purcell and William Byrd, in addition to Trevor Weston’s O Maria.

GEMS’ Open Gates Project offers a rich variety of music performed by distinguished professional artists at locations throughout New York City. The series is dedicated to creating greater access to stages for musicians of color in Early Music, while also seeking to create greater access to Early Music for underserved communities. The Project aims to see increased diversity on the stage and in the audience.
