"The Mark of Zorro" (1920) with Douglas Fairbanks
Innovative, historically informed and multi-cultural, HESPERUS brings history alive with silent movie scores, cultural fusions and single-genre early music programs from the Middle Ages through the American Revolution. Whatever the genre, HESPERUS performs with creative energy, technical assurance and a sense of fun.
Since 1979, HESPERUS has appeared throughout the US, Southeast Asia, Latin America and Europe, most recently at Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Lincoln Center, and Carmel Bach Festival and The Cloisters, as well as at festivals in Italy, Germany, Indonesia and Bolivia. Awards include the Logan Prize for Excellence in Educational Programming, the Music and Humanity Award from Music at Gretna, the Baltimore Chamber Music Award, and for Director Tina Chancey, a Lifetime Achievement Award from Early Music America.
Many in Indianapolis will remember Hesperus's "Robin Hood" program played to a full-house in 2012.
