Season Guest Concert Series Welcomes the Sarasa Ensemble

September 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Sarasa Ensemble begins its season with a 7 p.m. concert entitled “Female Torchbearers of the Baroque,” which will highlight fantastic, yet neglected music by female Baroque composers who set the music world alight with their compositions and performances.

The program will feature the works of Barbara Strozzi, Isabella Leonarda, Francesca Caccini, Antonia Bembo, and Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, outstanding female Baroque composers who deservedly achieved a popular following usually reserved for their male counterparts.

Sarasa performers will include Kristen Watson, soprano; Elicia Silverstein, violin; Jennifer Morsches, piccolo cello; Timothy Merton, cello; Michael Leopold, theorbo; and John McKean, harpsichord.

The Sarasa Ensemble is a collective group of international instrumentalists and vocalists who perform classical music of outstanding quality, spanning the 17th to the 21st centuries, on both period and modern instruments, and bring this music to diverse communities.  Through the ensemble’s outreach program in adolescent detention facilities, it is dedicated to bridging cultural, aesthetic, and economic barriers and providing incarcerated teenagers with opportunities for growth, self-expression, and enrichment through music.
