Dear Early Music Fans (especially those who leave near Washington, D.C.):
I’ll be performing with Mark Cudek and his Peabody Ensemble with a fine Baroque band this Sunday. It’s free (with wine and cheese!), so please feel free to come by and say hello!
Robert Aubry Davis
The Peabody Renaissance Ensemble returns to Washington, D.C. to celebrate its 30th Anniversary on Sunday, April 22, at 4:00 PM, at the Church of the Epiphany (1317 G St., NW). Directed by its founder, Mark Cudek, the ensemble will present “The Rite Of Spring” featuring seasonal music by Albarti, Holborne, Jannequin, Senfl, Sermisy, and of course Anon.
The Baltimore Baroque Band, Peabody’s baroque orchestra directed by John Moran and Risa Browder, will join the ensemble in the second half featuring guest alumnus, Alan Choo, who will perform Spring from Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Alan Choo has performed as a concerto soloist with Apollo’s Fire/the Cleveland Baroque Orchestra at Tanglewood and Ravinia, and with Tafelmusik in Toronto. His playing has been described by The Straits Times Singapore as “an intoxicating brew of poetry and dare‐devilry.”
Both ensembles are joined by special guest, narrator Robert Aubry Davis.
A wine and cheese reception sponsored by Schneider’s of Capitol Hill will follow the program.
This concert is free and open to the public and reservations are not required.
