Palaver Strings: Beautiful and Bizarre

November 4, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$10 – $15

Many of us are familiar with Baroque music as background music, something pleasant piped into public spaces to set the scene. What we hear at weddings, church services, and funerals often omits the more challenging pieces, leaving us with a stilted, limited view of what Baroque music is. yes, it is full of florid passages and pleasing harmonies, but it is also full of grit, fury, and fire; the sounds of battle, passion, and rage. With our program, Beautiful and Bizarre we show the wide range of colors and textures that Baroque music has to offer, and the vibrancy and vitality it brings us even four hundred years later.
