The artists against a dark background

The Middlebury Performing Arts Series proudly presents Le Consort on their North American debut tour. Never heard music by Dandrieu, Merula, Guignon, or Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre?? Not to worry—Le Consort will introduce you to these unjustly neglected Baroque masters and more, in a program titled “Hidden Treasures of the Baroque.”

This inquisitive ensemble of violins, cello, and harpsichord passionately seeks, performs, and records exceptional works by overlooked composers, delighting audiences with the thrill of new discoveries. In this program you will encounter virtuosic Italians, melancholic Brits, elegant French, and one of the first women to make a career as a composer.

“Audacity, brilliance, and sensual interpretation… Le Consort naturally finds moments of meditation, theater, dance, and jubilant virtuosity…—Diapason d’Or

Learn more about this concert’s music in a free pre-concert lecture by Professor Emeritus of Music Larry Hamberlin, at 6:15 PM in MAC room 125.
