Pallade Musica - A Mio Modo
Presented by: Renaissance & Baroque Society
Pallada Musica celebrates the individual creative spirits and fantastical conceptions of the "modern" seventeenth-century composer. They trace the emergence of the Stile Moderno with sonatas by Castello and Mealli, to the pinnacle of the Stylus Phantasticus in Buxtehude's spectacular trios and Biber's dramatic "Mystery" sonatas.

Apollo's Fire - The Four Seasons: Rediscovered
Presented by: Renaissance & Baroque Society
Apollo's Fire shakes the dust off these beloved pieces by the hit pop composer of the 18th century. Complete with the colorful sonorities of guitar and harp, these concerts reveal the "rock n' roll" qualities of Vivaldi’s music. Under the direction of Jeannette Sorrell, the program includes the Concerto for Two Cellos and the fiery La Follia (Madness), a wild showpiece for the whole orchestra.
