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. These concerts are permanently on view on our website, here.

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. This program is ready to go when the time is right.

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. Have a listen.

New Muse at the Gibbes

New Muse is thrilled to be expanding our collaboration with the Gibbes Museum of Art in 2022. We’ve created three different musical programs, each based on an exhibition.  All three programs will be presented twice — once for school children who will come to the museum to hear the music and see the exhibit with which it’s paired, and once for the general public. 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
