Announcing the new 2019-20 Concert Season for Sospiri!

Thanks in part to a Minnesota Regional Arts Board grant, Sospiri returns to the Twin Cities for a full season of early baroque chamber music! A pair of concerts explore 17th century musico-poetic visions of death and birth as part of the “Lifecyles” grant project. Sospiri then revives and revises the spring program, full of sparkling vivacity.

Featuring

Nerea Berraondo, Mezzo-Soprano
Janna Kysilko, Soprano
Phillip Rukavina, Lute and Theorbo
Bruce Jacobs, Portative Organ
Dick Hensold, Flauto Dolce
Joe Dolson, Violin
