The Clarion Orchestra, under the direction of Cynthia Roberts, performs a program of Baroque favorites featuring virtuoso strings. From 17th-century Austrian innovators Biber and Schmelzer and masterpieces from Henry Purcell’s fire and plague-torn London, Clarion’s period band will perform music composed during and after past pandemics. The program also includes Vivaldi’s influential concerto from L’estro armonico and Geminiani’s Concerto Grosso in D Minor, ‘La Folia.’ A kaleidoscope of emotions, colors, and creativity make for an exciting evening of Baroque orchestral music.
