Five Fridays: Trio Galilei
Taking place by candle light in Saint Paul's stunning neo-gothic nave, every Five Fridays Concert includes a wine reception and an opportunity to greet the artists. All proceeds benefit two local outreach organizations: Face-to-Face Germantown and the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Northwest Philadelphia.
Hailed for its unique blend of Irish, Scottish, Early and Original music, Ensemble Galilei has created an inspired sound on stage and CD. Touring both gorgeous instrumental programs and exciting collaborative projects, the group takes each audience on an exquisitely designed journey.
Mixing the colors and styles of early instruments with Celtic traditions, the group is equally at home with Irish Reels, Medieval Cantigas and English Country Dance tunes. Ensemble Galilei is versatile, virtuosic, energetic, and very entertaining. Ensemble Galilei bring to CDs and the stage "All the precision of a first rate classical string quartet" and "communication between performers and audience at it best."
