    ACRONYM ensemble

    Osvaldo Golijov’s “Ayre”

    A stunning contemporary song cycle by Osvaldo Golijov for soprano and 11 players that weaves together Sephardic, Arabic, and Spanish traditions. Typical of Golijov’s compositional approach, this piece is about breaking down walls, political, cultural, or stylistic: it’s impossible to label Ayre as coming from any particular genre as it veers from classical to klezmer to pop and […]

Electric Earth gives affordable public concerts in the Monadnock Region that are meant to inspire, educate, and entertain, often looking beyond music to its connections to literature, dance, and visual art. We also provide music free of charge to groups in the Monadnock region whose members may not easily be able to attend public concerts, but who will benefit from the healing and educational power of live music.

 

Soon we will begin our 2015 season, but right now is a great time to lend your support, as this year draws to a close and we firm up next year’s plans. Despite our slender budget, EEC presented 31 concert and outreach events this season. The ratio of dollars to artistic product is extremely high. You can be sure whatever you give will contribute directly to the excitement we are bringing to our region!
