Seicento Baroque Ensemble: Evanne Browne conducting
Seicento Baroque Ensemble will present Dixit Dominus: music by G. F. Handel.
G.F. Handel, composer of the all-time choral favorite Messiah, lived in Rome in his early 20s where he was highly influenced by Italian music styles. In 1707, while opera was temporarily banned in the Papal States, Handel wrote cantatas, oratorios, and sacred music including Dixit Dominus, an extraordinary tour-de-force for chorus and orchestra.
Performing with period instruments, Seicento Baroque Ensemble presents Handels Dixit Dominus, conducted by Artistic Director, Evanne Browne, and featuring sopranos Amanda Balestrieri and Kathryn Radakovich, tenor Todd Teske, and guest mezzo soprano Barbara Hollinshead from Washington, D.C.
While Handel is most known for Messiah, we at Seicento pride ourselves in finding and performing lesser-known work from the 17th century, said Browne. Our outstanding vocalists singing with the historic instruments provides a unique and beautiful experience for all ages.
