New Muse at the Library
New Muse Concerts in partnership with the Charleston County Public Library, presents free concerts in its many branches, reaching a broad audience. During the pandemic, we also videotaped and presented three free, online concerts in collaboration with the library: Mosquito Dance and Other Tales, Songs of Heaven and Earth, and Blame It on the Bossa Nova.
New Muse at the Gibbes
In collaboration with the Gibbes Museum of Art, New Muse presents musical programs based on exhibitions at the museum. Bringing visual art and music together to tell a story is a powerful way to create connections both in the world of ideas and also in our local Charleston community.
You | Muse
New Muse completed a project called You | Muse to stay in touch with our audiences in the spring of 2020. We invited our listeners to submit a favorite piece or song — any genre, any style, any time period — and we responded with a piece in turn — a musical dialogue. The response was remarkable. Together we created a library of musical pairs, featured on our website.
New Muse Goes to School
New Muse has developed a delightful program to be presented in schools — a work for solo violin and narrator that tells the beloved story of Ferdinand, the peaceable bull.
