    Sibling Rivalry: French Baroque with a Twist!

    If you’ve always wanted to find out about Baroque music but you’ve been too afraid to try, this is the concert to go to. Musica Nuova presents a program of French Baroque masterworks – intimate songs, flamboyant cantatas, and charming instrumental works – that tell a story through music. Performed with staging and in character (when do you see that at Baroque concerts?) two sisters bicker about the pains and pleasures of love. Who will win? Rarely-heard – but exquisitely beautiful – airs de cour (courtly airs) and works by Monteclair, Bernier, and Clerambault help us decide. You’ve never had so much fun at an early music concert! Free dessert reception immediately following.

    With Kimberly Sizer, soprano; Amanda Keil, mezzo-soprano; Suzanne Cartreine, harpsichord; Emily Dahl, violin; Scott Lemire, lute and theorbo; Joshua Schreiber Shalem, viola da gamba; stage direction by Emilia Allen
