MONTEVERDI IN VENICE (New Trinity Baroque's Benefit Concert)
Join New Trinity Baroque for the final concert of its 2009/10 season, entitled "MONTEVERDI IN VENICE." This concert, which is at the same time going to be NTB's fundraising event to benefit the group, will spotlight tenors Leif Aruhn-Solen from Sweden and Mathias Hedegaard from Denmark, and will explore music by Claudio Monteverdi and his Venetian contemporaries Biagio Marini, Dario Castello and Giovanni Paolo Cima, whose 400th anniversary is celebrated this year.
New Trinity Baroque has been originally founded in London, England, in 1998. The group presented its first concert at the famous Church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, but after the ensemble's founder Predrag Gosta moved to the United States a few months later the group found its new permanent place in Atlanta. Praised by the critics for its innovative programming and exuberant music style, New Trinity Baroque has become one of the leaders in this country's vibrant early music community and Atlanta's artistic life. Having presented over 100 concerts since 1998, the group has been healed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as "Atlanta's premier baroque group" and "Atlantass most established early music ensemble." They play on period instruments, using historical techniques and appropriate voices, and regularly collaborate with foreign and well-established early music artists (past guest soloists include British violinist John Holloway, Dutch recorder virtuoso Marion Verbruggen, British soprano Evelyn Tubb and others).
The concert on June 5th will be presented at St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church, New Trinity Baroque's usual concert venue, and it will begin at 8 pm. A free Pre-concert Talk is scheduled for 7 pm. Patrons that bought tickets for the April 24 concert will be able to use them for this event.
