Details

As ensemble-in-residence at Marsh Chapel of Boston University, the debut performance on Saturday February 7th got our season off to an auspicious start. Music of Muffat, Rameau and Lully, with a little talk about baroque dance and high school dance by Michael Barrett.

Special thanks to Martin Near, Robert Miller and Peter Sykes. Thanks to Martin, we have proof that this performance actually took place!....well, that and the recording which will come out soon. It was an incredible evening and we were so lucky to have such an appreciative and attentive audience. Many thanks to our musicians who came from all over to give their time and talent to this ensemble.

See you in April- Monteverdi, Marini, Uccellini and more!

Warmly, Leslie Kwan and Michael Barrett
