Underwritten by a generous grant from the Tucson Desert Song Festival.
Acclaimed early music expert Avi Stein has put together three concerts of Baroque gems in a Festival that celebrates our 40th season. We are thrilled to present these special concerts that culminate in a dramatic Handel oratorio about love and jealousy.
We welcome these musicians who will be performing in the concerts:
Nola Richardson, soprano | Tyler Duncan, bass
Alana Youssefian and Chloe Fedor, violins | Jessica Troy, viola
Michael Untermann, cello | John Feeney, bass
Priscilla Herreid and Meg Owens, oboe | Nate Helgeson, bassoon
Tickets will be available for individual concerts as well as a Festival Pass for all three concerts.
