May 20th, 6:30pm
Indulge in a Wine and Champagne tasting along with other delights from Paris and savor an exclusive taste of the musical exhibitions that happened in Paris during Louis XIV’s reign.
This intimate concert will be performed live by candlelight in the Great Hall of the Historic Winslow House. Soak in the atmosphere as you listen to music popular at the time of the House’s early days performed by music scholars fluent in the genre, The Commonwealth Consort.
Tickets will be available mid-April. Proceeds will help to fund the preservation and operations of the 1699 Issac Winslow House.
About the Performers:
Commonwealth Consort explores the wealth of the Baroque era with keen historical judgement, lustrous period instruments, a bit of personal spontaneity, and a deep sensitivity to recognizing and evoking the emotionality inherent in the music of this wonderful period.
Founded by current and former graduate music students of Boston University and Longy, Commonwealth Consort debuted with a production of Monteverdi’s “Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda” in collaboration with Cottage Industry Theater that was performed eight times and well reviewed by the Boston Musical Intelligencer.
