Season Overview

Welcome to our 2017-18 Season!

From Artistic Director Trevor Stephenson

This season we are thrilled to present three wonderfully diverse programs of baroque masterworks. We’ll start in September with Imitation, exploring the fugal art of Vivaldi and Bach—with guest cellist Steuart Pincombe. December marks MBM’s seventh annual Baroque Holiday Concert. This year we’ll feature Bach’s elegant Cantata 32 plus Vivaldi’s dramatic Winter from the Four Seasons. To cap off it all off in April, we’ll test the limits of comic-tragic juxtaposition with a double-billing: Bach’s highly-caffeinated Coffee Cantata paired with Purcell’s heart-rending operatic masterpiece Dido & Aeneas.

Please join us as we explore this wonderful repertoire on period instruments in acoustically magnificent settings reminiscent of Baroque performance spaces.

We invite you to become a Madison Bach Musicians season subscriber. As a subscriber, you will receive the largest savings on ticket prices, preferred seating, and easy online ordering. And this year we’re offering some exciting new subscription options, including 2-concert or 3-concert packages, and a very economical student subscription rate.

Ticket sales make up our most reliable and vital funding source. Your support through season subscriptions gives us the financial security to produce these creative and artistically ambitious programs. I hope you will consider subscribing to this series of outstanding musical events.  Click here to see our  Season Brochure
