BIOGRAPHY

MB1800, a NYC institution, is the city’s longest-running (and first independent) series devoted exclusively to early music. Since the series’ inception, concerts have been presented at Corpus Christi Church in Morningside Heights, giving audiences a uniquely satisfying experience. Louise Basbas is the founder and director of the series. The New Yorker praised MB1800, calling it “the essential series” and “Gotham’s flagship early-music presenter.” Time Out New York remarked: “The resonant acoustics of Corpus Christi Church will deliver you into your own personal solitude.... Few other venues can claim this fusion of strong programming and quality auditory surroundings.”
