Hartford Connecticut Music
Maine Fiddle Camp brings a roadshow to Connecticut so you can enjoy the music of some of the world's best fiddle players from Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. The music is played by some very talented professional musicians who spent part of their summer in Maine. They will perform music to raise money for their local charities and the Maine Music Foundation.
Sean holds a Bachelor's degree in Music from the University of Maine and a Master's degree in Music from Yale University. He was born in Portland, Maine, the son of a fiddle player and an organist from New Hampshire.
Sean is an adjunct instructor at American University and also an adjunct professor at the School of Music at the University of Connecticut. He studied composition at Yale University, where he studied contemporary jazz styles. After a year of studying and cataloguing as many genres as possible, Diego returned to the state where she was certified as a teacher, and then returned to Connecticut to complete her master's degree in composite at the University of Hartford. She then began living in the Dominican Republic, where she shared her passion for music and teaching with her husband Juan Carlos and their three children.
His music appeared on NPR, Thistle and Shamrock, BBC television and his back and left elbow on MTV. From April 2017 to 2019 Sean was a member of the New York City Symphony Orchestra and performed in the annual Summer of Music concert series in the United States and Canada.
President Audrey Lindner reports: "In 1983, a happy agreement with the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford enabled us to run one program per year. Bushnell Memorial Management approached the Musical Club and suggested an artist the group could afford on its own, but they approached us and talked to us again. After Storr's death in 1989, the pleasantly surprised club will learn that it had set up a foundation fund to express appreciation for those who were members of the Hartford Music Club. Former club president Marjorie Jolie left $200,000 to the music club to support an annual concert with invited guest artists, and the program was renamed "Jolie's Concert Series."
The concert was a huge musical success, and shortly afterwards Miss Anderson's New York debut put her at the top of the list of artists to perform with. Marian was soon world famous and the Musical Club joined Bushnell Memorial to bring her to Hartford for the first time, for a concert with the Hartford Philharmonic Society. The first of several music projects supported by the Musikverein was the Hartford Philharmonic Society, founded in 1899. We were looking for a place where we could develop our musical abilities, provided we committed ourselves to performing and thus improving our own skills, knowledge and appreciation.
Bona Fide has had three top five Billboard singles, including "18th Vine," which was selected for Billboards. The band released their second album, "Call it what it is," in September, entitled "The Hit Song," which was nominated for best song at the New England Music Awards.
In a small town like Hartford, the band's choir concerts are part of a larger tradition of presenting classical music. After all, radio was not invented until the late 1890s, and radio broadcasting did not begin until the 1920s. The great classical music was composed in Europe and the United States, but until the end of the 19th century, it was necessary to be there personally to listen to the music. American houses, salon music was popular and the performances were organized according to a certain theme. These works were first performed on piano, organ and voice; strings and instruments were soon added.
The Hartford School of Music was founded in 1890, and many members of the music club were members of the Hartford Philharmonic Orchestra, the first professional orchestra in the United States. Hartford was lucky to be home to the 36-piece instrumental group that would become the Hartford Philharmonics Orchestra (founded in 1899) and the Connecticut Symphony Orchestra.
The founder of the music association, Alfred E. "Bubble" Hirsch, helped finance the group's activities and even went so far as to sustain annual losses.
Rose pointed out that over the years the association has intensified its efforts to support the purchase of instruments for high school students, to pay young musicians for music camps and to award scholarships to promising young performers. The Maine Fiddle Camp is a great opportunity to make music, learn melodies and be able to play and enjoy melodies with other people of all experiences and abilities. Music Together's programs are designed to engage families in music - to gain experience, support the mission, foster family bonds and create lifelong musical memories. This online program is designed for families who are looking for a musically rich and stimulating educational experience in difficult times of the year and brings the same level of commitment that families expect from our curriculum.
