Classical Music is Dead*

Form FITTINGS

Posted in Uncategorized by The Nouveau Classical Project on 02/11/2010

Just had our fittings for form/FIGURE this past Sunday, and everyone looks amazing in their outfits and is ready to go!

The concert is on Friday, February 19, and if you haven’t done so already you can get advance tickets here, which we highly recommend as seating is extremely limited for this event.

You can also get your name on the program, a ‘Classical Music is Dead’ tee, and other goodies here.

Get ready to be envied! Hope you can handle the overwhelming amount of attention this shirt may attract. We’d love to hear about any reactions, so feel free to send along photos and stories to info@nouveauclassical.org.

Coming Soon: ‘Classical Music is Dead*’ Tee Version 2.0

Posted in fashion, we like by The Nouveau Classical Project on 01/30/2010

People are aware of all sorts of important causes and precious endangered species going extinct…but what about the survival of classical music? Or at least its relevance to people outside classical music-dom. Like philately (which used to be one of my favorite hobbies before the miniature works of art went adhesive), classical music has become one of those hobbies that contain a handful of middle-aged aficionados, who I’m sure want to see classical music (ahem, concert music) live beyond their lifetime.

So let’s make it happen! Our new and improved ‘Classical Music is Dead*’ tee, exclusively designed for us by Gigi Burris, will help get classical music in people’s heads and get you loads of attention. It sure did for Rachel, read about her shirt shenanigans here. These limited-edition gems are rare, so you’d better nab one fast and get ready to be stalked by paparazzi! Shirts arrive February 5…more info and pics coming soon.

Publicity for $1?! Your name in lights (ok, more like in ink on quality paper) at our next event! Details here.

For form/FIGURE, we curate art, fashion, and music that take a direct cue from established or traditional elements.  Musicians will wear garments by fashion designer Gigi Burris, who draws inspiration from 1930’s icons Elsa Schiaparelli and Isabella Blow in creating her elegantly disheveled pieces.  Edward Lorenz adds a modern edge to extremely classic men’s wear. Artist Chris Rini takes historical New York City architecture and saturates it in bright colors. The musical selections on this program utilize forms and styles that stem from the past.  This concert offers examples of how perspectives on fixed things can still change over time.

For Kicks!

Posted in Uncategorized by The Nouveau Classical Project on 01/12/2010

The Nouveau Classical Project is now on Kickstarter.com! We’re fund raising for our upcoming event entitled form/figure, where we curate art, fashion, and music that take a direct cue from established or traditional elements. Featured are fashion designer Gigi Burris, whose work recently appeared in Italian VOGUE and Bazaar Magazine, and Brooklyn-based artist Chris Rini. Our eclectic program will include music by Philip Glass, Johan Halvorsen, and Danielle Schwob, among others.

This is really exciting because not only do you get recognition as a supporter of The Nouveau Classical Project on our printed programs (for as little as $1!), but you can also snag some valuable gifts for pledging beyond the minimum amount, such as comp tickets or a limited-edition (as in, less than 100 in existence!) ‘Classical Music is Dead*’ tee designed exclusively for us by Gigi. It’s important to get your pledges in ASAP, as Kickstarter.com’s all-or-nothing policy allows us only to receive funds if we make 100% of our goal by March 19 at 12:01 am, EDT.

So show us some love and get on Kickstarter.com! On top of our undying love for you, your name will be famous for at least the duration of the concert! Our sincerest thanks in advance.
