Portrait of Barbara Strozzi

Sospiri del Corpo

With great joy to be back on the concert stage, we would like to invite you to join us this spring for Sospiri del Corpo! We are very pleased to welcome guest artists Maria Jette, soprano, and Mary Burke, viola da gamba.

Bodily imagery has long inspired poets and composers to some of their finest works. From beautiful eyes, to golden hair and enticing lips, we explore the fascinations of the body through early music. Vocal and instrumental duets from Sances, D’India, Schütz, Strozzi and others form the core of the program.

Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door, and are $20 or pay-as-able.
