Lumedia Musicworks is a Texas early music ensemble that reimagines the concert experience for audiences by crafting vibrant programs with the best early music musicians and performing them in unique spaces.
MISSION & VISION
Lumedia Musicworks brings the excitement of early music into the modern era with fresh perspectives, captivating media, and live performances, making it accessible to new audiences in Dallas - Fort Worth and beyond.
Return early music to popular and often non traditional environments where it can be enjoyed, appreciated, and understood by new audiences.
WHAT IS EARLY MUSIC?
The term Early Music is used to encompass the musical offerings
from the medieval (500-1400) through baroque periods
(1600-1750). Early Music musicians specialize in playing on these
rare and beautiful instruments from the past.
Depending on our program, the ensemble can range in size from large to small. Unlike modern instruments you hear in concert halls today, these historic instruments have strings made from sheep gut, the bows are shaped differently, and playing techniques... let's just say the violins don't use chin rests, and the cellos don't have an end-pin!
There are many different tunings used, and many other unique variants that make this kind of orchestra really special to hear live!
We love using singers and provide a balanced musical program
that is a lively, social, drink-in-hand experience!
WHAT ARE SHORT FILMS?
With a vision to build deep connections with new audiences,
we create original short films that are hand-crafted to accompany
the best and most beautiful early music tunes.
We record our own tracks, create our own storyboards,
film our own cinematic content and most importantly aren't afraid
to experiment to create original short films.
Our seasons are full of collaboration with both for-profit and non-profit organizations with an aim to create unique experiences for all. Our expanding outreach program consists of a musically focused Historical Storytelling curriculum currently brought into assisted living and memory care centers in Dallas- Fort Worth.
