The Winter Musicale is our primary annual fundraising event, a recital followed by a fundraising dinner. Ticket sales cover less than half the cost of our concerts; the Winter Musicale plays an important role in making our Festival seasons possible.
The 40th Season Winter Musicale will be held on Sunday, February 16, 2020 at 5 p.m. and the hour-long concert will feature a grand tour of Baroque wind instrument concertos entitled Winds of the Western World. Detailed program and venue details are below.
This first event of the Festival’s landmark year is led by artistic director Elizabeth Blumenstock on violin, and features the internationally renowned Baroque bassoonist Dominic Teresi, recorder player Alexandra Opsahl and Baroque oboist Stephen Hammer (all pictured above). They are joined by violinist Andrew McIntosh, violist Ramón Negrón Pérez, cellist Leif Woodward and harpsichordist Ian Pritchard for performances of solo and chamber concertos by Fasch, Telemann and Vivaldi—including the Venetian composer’s dramatic recorder concerto La Tempesta di Mare. Please join us in our first musical journey of 2020 overseas, and across Europe, to celebrate four decades of the Baroque Music Festival!
