Seicento Baroque Ensemble will present ‘A Royal Tour’ of music from the courts of Europe
By Peter Alexander March 21 at 11:30 a.m.
When Amanda Balestrieri says “see you in court,” it’s an offer, not a threat.
As director of Seicento Baroque Ensemble, she knows just how much music originated in the royal courts of the 17th and 18th centuries. And for the group’s final concert of the 2018–19 season, she is pulling music from the courts of England, France and other European countries into a single program. “In Your Court: A Royal Tour” will be performed March 22-24 in Boulder, Denver and Longmont.
In addition to the singers of Seicento, the concert features guest vocal soloists and local freelance instrumentalists who make up a small orchestra. The vocalists are students or recent graduates who wanted more experience with the Baroque style.
