Music in the Mountains to Bring the Baroque Chamber Orchestra to Grass Valley – YubaNet
Music in the Mountains (MIM) announces its spring concert with Sinfonia Spirituosa which will take place in Grass Valley on April 2, 2022 at 4 p.m. at the Peace Lutheran Church. Tickets are on sale now.
Sinfonia Spirituosa is a chamber orchestra dedicated to presenting bold and historically informed performances on period instruments. Through dynamic and collegial exchanges, they aspire to faithfully bring to life the wide range of colors, affects and rhetoric inherent in the music of the Baroque era.
The ensemble composition of strings, flute, bassoon, oboe, voice, harpsichord, organ, archlute, theorbo, and baroque guitar allows for programming that displays a surprisingly wide variety of national styles and unique instrument combinations. Sinfonia Spirituosa’s repertoire, which spans over 100 years of Baroque music, exemplifies the spontaneous and improvisatory character of the era and highlights the surprising and cosmopolitan harmonic language of the late 17th century, the rich complexity of German Baroque style and the sumptuous textures and dramatic flair of the late French composers.
Members of Sinfonia Spirituosa lead multifaceted careers as university professors, recording artists, soloists, conductors, chamber musicians and symphonic musicians. They are active as teachers and performers on period and modern instruments, and many are directors of their own ensembles specializing in early music, romantic music, new music, jazz and gypsy swing.
A central tenet of Sinfonia Spirituosa’s vision is to celebrate the music of the past while inspiring young musicians of the future. Through immersion in a creative rehearsal and performance environment, their mentorship program aims to stimulate and support promising high school, undergraduate and graduate instrumentalists and singers who are curious, open-minded and committed to explore original instruments and study the musical language of the Baroque period. Sinfonia Spirituosa is thrilled to have violist Breana McCullough join their mentorship program for our Spring 2022 concerts in California!
