What?

The Green Mountain Project (denoting the literal translation of Monteverdi’s name) is in its 4th year, and after last year's Vespers of 1640, we're back with Claudio Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 -  the work that launched our tradition.

Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 represents the pinnacle of 17th century sacred music and 28 musicians are coming together to perform the work in an ideal space - glorious Church of St. Mary the Virgin. Due to the overwhelming demand to hear this work, there will be three performances: two in New York City and one in Cambridge, MA.

We can't wait to perform this amazing work for you again...

When? Where?

7:30PM on Wednesday, January 2, 2013
7:30PM on Thursday, January 3, 2013
Church of St. Mary the Virgin
145 West 46th Street, New York City

7:30PM on Saturday, January 5, 2013
St. Paul's Church
29 Mount Auburn Street, Cambridge MA

Tickets are also on sale on our website, but for a little extra donation, you'll be listed in our concert program, receive special gifts, and warm our hearts knowing that our community of friends believes in us!

As you can imagine, putting on a concert like this is an expensive and involved operation. Our musicians come from all over the country, we have to rent the church, and we have to honor the beautiful work of the wonderful performers! Backing this project will ensure we can do all that and keep our tickets affordable so we can continue to share this tradition with all of you lovely people!

Risks and challenges

Called "a major force in the New York early music world" (New York Times), our artistic director, Jolle Greenleaf has successfully organized the Green Mountain Project for 3 years in a row in addition to many large and small projects for TENET, New York's most exciting early music vocal ensemble, to uniformly excellent reviews from the New York Times and other major publications.

The musicians have been contracted, the venue is booked, and we've already begun selling tickets--we are all set to go! We just need fund to honor all of our commitments, and we are working hard to ensure that happens!
