Evening of Italian Baroque Music by Concordia Chamber Players
“IL FATTORE XX”: Two of the performers at Concordia ChamberFest 2022. The concert is at The Barn at Glen Oaks Farm in Solebury, Pa., on September 10.
On September 10, Concordia Chamber Players will present an evening of Italian Baroque music featuring the works of female composers of the 17th century for ChamberFest 2022. Some of the lesser-known composers featured on the program are Catarina Assandra, Barbara Strozzi, Isabella Leonardo, and Francesca Caccini.
The group returns to the barn at rustic Glen Oaks Farm where a “gutsy, plucky band” presents Il Fattore XX. The featured musicians, all specialists in Baroque music, include Edwin Huizinga and Manami Mizumoto on violin, soprano Chelsea Helm, Elliot Figg on harpsichord and Concordia Artistic Director Michelle Djokic on continuo.
In addition to the formal concert there will be a free, open rehearsal at the New Hope Public Library on September 9 at 2 p.m. where listeners can observe some of the preparation involved in presenting a concert. That evening at 6:30 p.m., there will be a special event for members of the 1740 House in Lumberville, Pa. with violinist Huizinga, in which he will reveal his versatility in crossing different genres of music. He will be joined by Djokic on cello.
Tickets to the concert are $75. Visit concordiaplayers.org.
