Foreign Inspiration – Visitors From Across the Channel

February 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm PST

$25 – $30

Part of the Pacific Baroque Festival – With the advent of public concerts, the fascination with opera, and the opening of the ‘pleasure gardens’, London, as the largest city in Europe, became a hive of musical activity during the 18th century. The plethora of musical opportunities attracted foreign musicians to visit or make their home there. One could hear the very latest compositions played by the best musicians of the day, most notably George Frederic Handel, who became a kind of composer-in-residence at the Vauxhall pleasure gardens during the 1730s. This concert includes works by Handel in addition to those by J.C. Bach and Gemiani and others. Artists: Marc Destrubé (Baroque violin, director), Arwen Myers (soprano), Kathryn Wiebe (Baroque violin), Eva Lymenstull (viola da gamba), Natalie Mackie (viola da gamba), Marco Vitale (harpsichord and organ), Lucas Harris (theorbo)
