FRENZY AND FIRE: MUSIC GONE MAD
1 November 2015 | Sunday 3:00 p.m.
St. Philip’s In The Hills Episcopal Church, 4440 N. Campbell Ave., Tucson, Arizona
Madness can send you careening from bliss to anguish and back. So can music, especially when it goes a little crazy. The frenzied steps of the folia, a dance that made young women yield to, well, folly, and the heartbroken howls of operatic heroines…madness set to music can terrify, stir, and delight.
We welcome back Wayward Sisters, 2011 winners of the Early Music America Baroque competition, joined by former Tucson resident, soprano Kathryn Mueller. Reviewers have described Kathryn as a singer who “thoroughly captures the imagination” and possesses “lovely tone and easy agility.” Kathryn (soprano), Beth Wenstrom (baroque violin), Anne Timberlake (recorders), Anna Steinhoff (baroque cello and viola da gamba), and John Lenti (theorbo and guitar) will send you on a mad whirl through music by Vivaldi, Handel, Purcell and others.
“...the Wayward Sisters immediately impress with their evident rapport.” –Gramophone
