Art + Culture in Claremont

Two of the signature character defining features of our community is the rich history of Art and Culture that dates back to the founding of Claremont.  Claremont Heritage is constantly collecting and archiving the remnants of our society so that we might not only document the history but also disseminate this valuable information by cataloging them in our archives, making them available to researchers and through educational programs such as exhibitions, documentaries, publications and talks.
This month there are several opportunities to experience our cultural history first hand. We invite you to join us on the following programs, guaranteed to inform and delight the participants.

Please join Claremont Heritage for the official launch of the
Treasury of Claremont Music (TCM) project with an evening of performances highlighting a cross-section of the musicians who are currently featured in the TCM, a website that will be a living document that will continue to grow over the years.   
The Treasury of Claremont Music archive is an online archive of the music and musicians of this area. Join us for the launch of this project at this very special event. There will be performances from some of the inaugural artists included in the project, as well as hors d'oeuvres and libations on the Garner House terrace.

Performers include Alan Medak, Falcon Eddy, Sugar Mountain Mama Serenade, Hai Muradian, Michael Ryan and Ken Soderland. KSPC DJs will be spinning short sets between performers.
Press Release HERE 
The Treasury of Claremont Music is a long-overdue undertaking. Conceived by local Artist/Musician Tom Skelly a few years ago, the project is currently being managed by Claremont Heritage as part of our mission to document and preserve our cultural Heritage.   
We are archiving the city's rich and varied musical culture and history so that Claremont's past, present, and future musical accomplishments will not be forgotten. It is our intention to put the vast array of genres under one easily accessible roof, to honor our local musicians and artists and their achievements, and to share these resources for personal and educational enjoyment.  
The Treasury of Claremont Music will be a living online resource that showcases our local musicians through photos, biographies, and music. The website will be continuously updated with new musicians, while also featuring content on Claremont's musical history and promote upcoming musical events. This repository of local music aims to be an encyclopedia of all things Claremont music and will be an invaluable research resource for schools, libraries, non-profit organizations, radio, and other appropriate institutions.
