What a year 2021 has been! OnJam’s first year has been action-packed, and full of surprises.
One of the best surprises was how many innovative and high quality classical music events appeared on OnJam. So it’s no wonder that global audiences quickly followed.
Despite this, many of these creative projects would not have happened without generous grant funding.
Continuo Foundation emerged as an important supporter of classical ensembles in early music and playing on historical instruments. In addition, it quickly grasped the benefits of online and hybrid concerts for their grantees.
This December and January, we’d like to highlight some of the groups that received support from the Continuo Foundation. All of them used OnJam in 2021 to connect with music-lovers all over the world and earn revenues online.
These are all high quality concerts. The repertoire ranges from the Medieval to the early Romantic periods.
You can financially support any of these groups by purchasing a ticket to their concert on OnJam, or by leaving them a tip or donation. Tickets to online concerts also make an excellent gift for the music-lover in your life!
In order of appearance:
Joglaresa: Boogie Nights
The Mozartists: Chamber Music Recital Series
Ensemble Hesperi: Caledonia to the Capital
Boxwood & Brass: New Sounds for Old Winds
Consone Quartet: Barnstorming! Series
Palisander: Double, Double, Toil and Trouble
Spiritato with The Marian Consort: Inspiring Bach
La Nuova Musica: Mozart’s First and Last
As with all tickets sold on OnJam, the ensemble receives 85% of revenue. For all tips or donations given via OnJam, the ensemble receives 95%.
You can watch any of these filmed concerts until the end of January 2022.
You can also give The Mozartists a tip or donation here.
Ensemble Hesperi presents a concert of charming chamber music and song by Scottish eighteenth century composers, inspired by the soaring folk melodies and dance rhythms of Scotland itself.
Boxwood & Brass created three concerts within their ‘New Sounds for Old Winds‘ series. You can get tickets to watch each of the concerts individually, or get a series pass to watch all three.
If you loved the series, consider giving Boxwood & Brass a tip.
Consone Quartet released three concerts in their Barnstorming! series. They are: String Quintets with Alexander Rolton (cello), Schubert Octet with Consone Quartet and friends, and Schumann with Consone Quartet and Mary Bevan.
Another way to support Consone Quartet is to leave them a tip. A personal note or greeting is optional.
This is a concert of music collected by or admired by Johann Sebastian Bach.
To watch Mozart’s First and Last, purchase a ticket. You can purchase the two parts of the documentary-concert separately, or select a series pass to watch both parts at a discounted price.
You can also give La Nuova Musica a tip or donation. If you like, write them a greeting or note.
