About the Event

Founded in 1999 by violinist and director Ann-Marie Barker Schwartz, the group specializes in music performed in America during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Many of the performing materials are drawn from the Special Collections of the New York State Library. In 2002, Musicians of Ma’alwyck performed by invitation for television producer Norman Lear in celebration of his purchase of the last private copy of the Declaration of Independence. 

Musicians of Ma’alwyck has been presented on National Public Radio, WMHT-FM and WMHT-TV. In 2009 the ensemble produced the 1783 opera The Poor Soldier by William Shield, drawing national attention. Musicians of Ma’alwyck was named the best chamber music ensemble of the Capital Region for both 2008 and 2009 by Metroland. This past season the ensemble commissioned an opera about the woman suffrage movement, which premiered last June. Titled Aleda or the Flight of the Suff Birdwomen, and written by Max Caplan, the opera received high artistic praise.

Please note: Our Harmonies on the Hudson concert series is presented free of charge thanks to the generocity of our corporate sponsor, Ballston Spa National Bank. All Harmonies on the Hudson concerts are weather permitting. Check out the whole season’s concert calendar at friendsofclermont.org/events
