Baroque Holiday Concert
Our sixth annual Baroque Holiday Concert will once again be held in the beautiful and sonorous sanctuary of the First Congregational Church. The program will feature: a cappella masterworks by Lassus and Josquin performed by a vocal quartet, Biber’s intriguing Partita for two scordatura violins (scordatura means the open strings are re-tuned into a new interval configuration!), Telemann’s Sonatina in A minor for baroque bassoon and continuo―with soloist Marc Vallon, J. S. Bach’s Christmas Cantata BWV 122 Das neugeborne Kindelein (The Newborn Baby); and a bonus feature―a preview of MBM’s upcoming April performance of Bach’s St. John Passion, the tenor aria Ach, mein Sinn.
Musicians Chelsea Morris, soprano • Joseph Schlesinger, counter-tenor • Scott Brunscheen, tenor • Matthew Tintes, bass • Kangwon Kim & Brandi Berry, baroque violins • Marika Fischer Hoyt, baroque viola • Martha Vallon, baroque cello • Marc Vallon, baroque bassoon • Trevor Stephenson, harpsichord
