Violinist Lara St. John Launches New Live Concert Series

The Canadian violinist announced her new digital concert series, "The Atterbury House Sessions," to be streamed on The Violin Channel

The initiative celebrates the 150th anniversary of the iconic Atterbury House with 11 chamber music concerts taking place from January 23rd to June 5th, 2021.

The Atterbury House, in New York City, was built in 1871 by architect Robert Mook and reimagined by Grosvenor Atterbury of McKim, Mead & White in 1909. It is considered one of the iconic architectural contributions of its time.

The series was produced by and funded entirely by private donations, in cooperation with the not-for-profit Paracademia center for music. Its aim is to provide performance opportunities and compensation to musicians at this difficult time in the music industry.

The series will feature performances by St, John, Sybarite5, Tessa Lark & Michael Thurber, the Ulysses Quartet, Xavier Foley, PUBLIQuartet, The Westerlies, Imani Winds, Aisslinn Nosky, the Brentano Quartet, and Augustin Hadelich.

"I’ve spent a great deal of time thinking of my fellow musicians, who have been badly hurt by the loss of employment and the broad prohibitions against live concerts," St. John said. "I hope that this series will, in a small way, provide some colleagues with performance outlets and offer audiences a little respite from the harsh realities of the pandemic."

“At this challenging time of COVID-19 and its devastating impact on education and the arts, the Atterbury Sessions speak to the need to nurture and revitalize our artistic output through community efforts and collaborative production,” Milica Paranosic, founder and executive director of Paracademia said.
