Mannes Alumnae Concert

Dorian Baroque members Marina Fragoulis (violin) and Magdalena Baczewska (harpsichord) return to Mannes College The New School for Music for an alumnae concert on September 21st.

Mannes College The New School for Music was founded in 1916 by David Mannes and Clara Damrosch, a husband and wife team with revolutionary ideas in the field of music education. The first location of the school was on East 70th street and later moved to its present location on West 85th street in 1984. Now the school faces a new move to Greenwich Village, a vibrant neighborhood and already home to The New School’s Jazz Division.

This Alumnae Concert will be one of the last at the school’s upper west side location. It is where Marina (B.M. ’00) and Magdalena (B.M. ’01, M.M.’03) met while completing their undergraduate degrees. Both were rather uninvolved in early music at the time and meticulously engaged in the school’s rigorous Technique’s of Music curriculum while studying in the finest private studios in New York City. Magdalena was a pupil of Jerome Rose and Marina a student of David Nadien. It was many years after graduating that each developed an interest in historical performance practice and sought to perform together.

The concert is free and open to the public. It takes place on Sunday, September 21st at 3pm in Goldmark Hall and will feature music for baroque violin and harpsichord.
