St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 4805 NE 45th St, Seattle

The years leading up to the English Civil War in 1642 were full of riotous discord, reflected in the popular Broadside Ballads. At the same moment, William Lawes, (1602-1645) the greatest English musical genius between Dowland and Purcell was producing vocal and instrumental music of unparalleled beauty. His life was cut short in battle, but his legacy of musical jewels, including the unique Harp Consorts, remains for our discovery today.  Details Here

St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 4805 NE 45th St, Seattle

The greatest musical myth of all is the story of Orpheus. Monteverdi’s setting was the first unqualified operatic masterpiece, full of dramatic word painting, narrative urgency, rich orchestration, and exquisite writing for vocal ensemble. L’Orfeo feels as fresh and full of relevance as it must have at its premiere in 1607.

Sunday, April 23 at 1:30 pm: Constantinople & Marco Beasley – Il Ponte di Leonardo

Town Hall, 1119 8th Ave, Seattle

In 1502, Leonardo da Vinci drafted the plans for what would have been the largest bridge in the world, in Istanbul. However, the project never saw the light of day. Five centuries after Da Vinci’s death, this concert gives musical expression to his unfinished architectural project and builds the bridge he envisioned between East and West. Musical works drawn from 16th- and 17th-century manuscripts found in the national libraries of Istanbul and Florence will be revisited by the solo musicians of the Constantinople ensemble and the sublime Italian singer Marco Beasley. These works represent Persia and the Ottoman Empire on the one hand, and Renaissance Italy on the other. This concert continues our journey tracing the footsteps of the great visionaries and is also a celebration of the imagination and greatness of an artist who left a profound mark on the history of humankind.  Details Here
