#GivingTuesdayCle with #BurningRiverBq
Burning River Baroque brings diverse communities together through vibrant musical performances that inspire engaging dialogues and meaningful social change. Their cutting-edge programs bring the vitality of baroque music to life for contemporary audiences by demonstrating the profound connections between issues of the past and those of modern times. By offering most concerts for free and by donation and performing in a wide array of venues, they reach the broadest possible audience base in Ohio and beyond. To further fuse together ideas of the past and present and demonstrate the profound connections between issues of the past and present, they commission a new composition each season.
Burning River Baroque fosters community partnerships including lectures, masterclasses and concerts with high school students at Bard High School Early College Cleveland and song-writing workshops with victims of human trafficking at the Renee Jones Empowerment Center.
Currently we are raising money for our March 2020 concert, entitled "Witches: Revered and Reviled," which looks at women who stepped outside of the box in history, the portrayal of witches, and in current day news, bullying and ostracizing of the "other." Additionally we are hoping to begin raising funds for our September concert which features a collaboration with Blue Streak Ensemble and tackles conversations about the environment.
