Announcing two Beacon Hill Concerts—one instrumental, one vocal— by the Chamber Players of Tempesta di Mare
(All the artists are principal players/performers with the Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra)
Sunday, December 3, 2023, 3:00 pm, “UNMATCHED” – six players, six wind and string instruments – flute, recorder, oboe, bassoon, violin, lute, and harpsichord in many combinations. The instruments blend and contrast, call and respond, stand out as soloists, and form a cohesive whole. The program starts with a concerto by Vivaldi followed by works of other baroque composers: Telemann, and lesser-known Zelenka, Janitsch, Fasch, and Boismortier.
Sunday, February 4, 2024, 3:00 pm, “CRUEL AMARYLLIS” – two tenors extraordinaire, James Reese and Jacob Perry, accompanied by three theorbos. A program of Italian Madrigals centering on works for two voices by 17th century composers Claudio Monteverdi and Sigismondo d’India, whose transformation of the madrigal genre brought vocal music to expressive heights unsurpassed to this day.
Both concerts will be held at Beacon Hill Music Hall, 119 Barn Rd., E. Stroudsburg PA 18301.
Reservations: As in the past, Dan accepts reservations for concerts one month prior to the concert date, starting on November 3 for “Unmatched” and January 4 for “Cruel Amaryllis”. Make your reservation by emailing him on or after these dates indicating the number of seats you wish to reserve, and the NAMES of all attendees. Your reservation is not “official” until you receive confirmation from Dan. There is no admission fee, only a “suggested donation” of $15 adult, $10 senior, $5 student, at the door. Please reserve for friends only if they are definitely planning to attend.
Sidnie and I look forward to seeing you all soon and sharing with you these unique musical events.
