Join St Pete Baroque for the opening concert of their 3rd season, “Lifting Unheard Baroque Voices”. Experience the magic and learn the stories of four rarely heard women composers. There will also be a premier of a recently discovered piece for the viola d’amore that has not been played in over 350 years. Additionally, there will be gems by Monteverdi, Abel, and Cazzati. The other unheard voices on this program are the rarely-heard instruments themselves!
Hear the powerful and richly dynamic voice of soprano Hein Jung; the 14-stringed viola d’amore, played by Artistic Director Dan Urbanowicz; baroque violin, played by Sarah Shellman; viola da gamba, played by Guest Artist Sarah Biber from Colorado; theorbo, by Guest Artist David Dolata from Miami; and the harpsichord, by Guest Artist Webb Wiggins from Fort Lauderdale.
