Friends of the ARC Ensemble

ARC's performances and recordings have earned the ensemble an impressive international reputation, in addition to three Grammy nominations. Central to its repertoire is the reclamation of composers who, having been suppressed under fascism and communism, were subsequently forgotten, their music marginalized on the basis of race or political belief, rather than artistic worth. Tens of thousands of works still await assessment and recovery, a process that involves archival research, the preparation of scores, musical assessment and finally performance and dissemination. Many of the ensemble's musical finds were last heard over 80 years ago, and their reintroduction to the repertoire represent exciting voyages of discovery for both audience and performer. 
ARC relies on the generous financial support of its donors to cover the costs of research, score preparation, recording, performance and promotion. Your support will ensure that that the recovery and revival of musical masterworks and a lost cultural heritage can continue.
