Con Vivo Music was rooted in the belief that live classical music should be available to the Jersey City public (and really, everyone) for free.
Eight years and sixty concerts later, their intial mission is still growing at a rapid pace. To fund the all-volunteer group, they host several events throught the year. This Saturday, October 24th is perhaps one of their biggest fundraisers: A gala at none other than the historic Barrow Mansion.
Con Vivo’s 2015 season included a build-your-own instruments kids show, a Bach concert, a program featuring Jersey City based composers, and a 7-part modern opera called Perfect Lives Jersey City.
Welcome to this year: Music by Pulitzer-prize winning composer Caroline Shaw, a world premiere composition by CVM’s own Mazz Swift, Bela Bartok string duets, and Lansing McLosky’s beautiful Processione di Lacrime for string trio and alto sax. Music will be performed by Amelia Hollander Ames (viola), Mazz Swift (violin), Marika Hughes (cello), and Zach Herchen (saxophone). There will also be a celebration with music, cocktails, light food, and a silent auction.
