The Jefferson Project, a collaborative effort with the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society, aims to tell the story of music at Monticello through a series of four concerts that are the outgrowth of research by Artistic Director and baroque violinist David McCormick and viola da gamba player Loren Ludwig as 2020 Fellows of the International Center for Jefferson Studies.
Artistic Director David McCormick plans to offer a brief virtual solo concert on March 29 at 4pm. Additional live stream projects are in the works!
Join EMAP for our adventurous 3rd season as we continue to explore themes of connection, collaboration, community, and access. Cellist Amanda Gookin helps opens our season with a meditative concert inspired by medieval composer Hildegard von Bingen. In the spring, Artistic Director David McCormick will bring to life the sounds of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello upon completion of a fellowship with the International Center for Jefferson Studies. The Jefferson Project will span two seasons and explore music Jefferson heard, played, and collected, including the often overlooked music of Virginia's enslaved population. The Community Baroque Gathering returns in January, and EMAP hits the road for the first time, performing in Amherst and Winchester, Virginia. Click below to learn more!
