$15/$10 Student/Senior

In our season kickoff, we pit Italian divas against English fiddles in a program celebrating ‘individuality’ above all. David Douglass joins us to perform music from two major works published in 1651 – Playford’s ‘The English Dancing Master’ and Venetian composer Barbara Strozzi’s opus 2 of cantatas, arias, and duets.

Formed in 2008, Glorious Revolution Baroque is a unique quartet of soprano, strings, and keyboard based in St. Paul, Minnesota that aspires to bring the 17th century’s rich musical expression of emotion to Minnesota audiences, presenting the full range of the period’s repertoire-from opera, cantata, and madrigal to concerti, sonatas, and suites. GRB’s artists have been praised in the press as ‘names to watch” and as a ‘major musical force.’
