ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: We are pleased to have Paul Holmes Morton join LOTNY THIS Friday (June 4) to play theorbo and guitar in our livestream concert: Monteverdi & other Treasures of the Seicento!

Lutenist, theorbist, banjoist, guitarist, lyricist, composer, arranger, vocalist, historical archeologist, soloist, chamber musician; the music of Paul Holmes Morton is defined less by genre than by a fascination with history, a cultivation of creativity, and a belief that music once born does not die or grow old. With a technical palette of colors ranging from the Florentine Camerata to modern Americana, Paul follows the thread of resonant evolution, his interpretations and performances stained with the resin left by countless musics present and not yet passed.

Tickets to join us online are just $5 and still available at lotny.org (link in bio).

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: we are delighted to have Violinist Manami Mizumoto return to LOTNY for our June 4th livestream concert: MONTEVERDI & other Treasures of the Seicento. Ms. Mizumoto has been featured in LOTNY’s The Shepherd King video project (which you can watch at lotny.org) and in the livestream Mozart & Friends.

New York native Manami Mizumoto (Violin) started her lifelong relationship with music at age 3 on the violin. Early exposure to chamber music sparked in her a devoted love of collaboration. This led to a fascination with performing contemporary music and working with living composers. In recent years, this has manifested in a songwriting project co-created with Uhuru Quartet and composer Sato Matsui to benefit women’s shelters in NYC. In addition, Manami is passionate about exploring different approaches to music making in history and how that can transform the way modern audiences relate to music of the past. Her driving curiosity is in exploring the dialogue between ancient and contemporary thoughts, and she is equally at home on the baroque violin, modern violin, and electro-acoustic setups with Ableton Live. Manami is a recent graduate of the Juilliard School, where she earned her Masters in Historical Performance and graduated with the Norman Benzaquen Career Advancement Grant.

Tickets start at just $5 for MONTEVERDI this Friday! Visit lotny.org for details. Link in bio.
