Biographies

Renée Silberman
Founder of Serenata Music Concerts
Renée Silberman

Founder and Director of Serenata Music Concerts



Renée Silberman, essayist on topics of musical interest, has authored program notes for performances in concert halls in Canada and the U.S. Her material accompanies all recitals on the Serenata Music Series. She has provided material for concerts at Carnegie Hall and for events at Baruch College in Manhattan. Ms. Silberman has also contributed the liner notes to many CDs, including those by Sergiu Schwartz, violin and Alec Chien, piano, by the Serafin String Quartet, and by Coenraad Bloemendal, cello, and Erica Goodman, harp.


Recognized for meticulous scholarship and a lively style (“according to Renée Silberman’s uncommonly informative program annotations….[which] shed much interesting light,” Harris Goldsmith in New York Concert Review), she creates articles richly detailed, educational and entertaining. With a background in cultural history, she places the purely musical aspects of her writings within the context of the times. She explores the interrelationship of the dynamics of cultural movements that influenced composers and the inner motivations pressing composers to seek new directions. Her research embraces subjects ranging from Purcell and English song to the art of modern French song; from the quartets of Haydn to those of Bartok and Shostakovich; from Court orchestras to concentration camp orchestras.


Renée completed biographical sketches of Maria Rosé and Gordon Jeffery, which appear in the volume London: 100 Fascinating Lives (Lorimer, Toronto, 2005). She has maintained a presence as music columnist for Beat Magazine and The London Yodeller, as a critic and as a commentator on topics of cultural interest.



Following family involvement in music production in Pittsburgh and New York, Renée began an independent career as a concert organizer. After exploring the possibility of presenting events in the 1990s, Renée developed the formal Serenata Music program, which has been in place since 2003. Her enthusiasm remains undiminished, as she sees the series move into its second decade.



Ms. Silberman is recognized for her avid support of musicians at every stage of their artistic development. She encourages music education for people of all ages. Above all, her strong belief in the thrill of live performance is the driving force behind the creation of Serenata Music and its continuing success.
