WDEL's Delaware Arts Showcase
with Carl Kanefsky, in association with Content Delaware


For 20 years, Mélomanie has entertained audiences with its unique blend of early music.

“The music of the baroque, and then a little bit into the classical of a little before the baroque, then we skip the 19th century, and we go straight to the 20th and 21st century. We think this is a hugely dynamic pairing of music.”

That's Tracy Richardson, one of the founding members of the ensemble, who says she and the whole group feel like they want to give more to the community than entertainment.

“We would like to be more than music. Music is wonderful, it's actually enough, but we have enjoyed making connections and collaborations with several social service agencies in the city and in Philadelphia. So it builds the sense of duty, really, that we have to one another. It's something extra the audience gets to do and that we get to do with somebody like Friendship House.”
