Detailed programs at a glance

Join the ensemble for an exploratory journey of both traditional and new music conceived for the inquisitive listener.

Highlights include a visit from Principal horn player of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, Andrew Clark, who has been described as "a staggering prodigy of the natural horn."

David Krakauer will perform klezmer clarinet in Betty Olivero’s Der Golem, and mezzo-soprano Janice Felty will return to perform in Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire and the much anticipated world premiere performance of John Harbison’s Aria: Song for the Rainy Season.
