Bringing Research to the Stage
The Red Skies Music ensemble combines music and scholarship,
making archives and special collections come alive
through research and performance.
George Boziwick and Trudy Williams, Co-Founders
About the programs
George Boziwick (Curator and Musical Director) and Trudy Williams (Artistic Director) co-create and co-produce research-based programs that are educational and entertaining for both general and expert audiences.
Through the Ensemble's unique Public Musicology performance model, each program brings research to the stage through the lens of music in an engaging narrative, musical and theatrical performances, and large screen images of archival documents and artifacts. These elements are combined in a single setting to bring the audience on journey that contextualizes historical and musicological facts and insights, many of which have been hidden in plain sight or dimmed in cultural memory. Programs include opportunities for audience participation, and conclude with a Q&A, often with a guest expert.
