Jean Stein Memorial Concert: Virtuosic Handel
Join us for an elegant afternoon of virtuosic Baroque music celebrating the life of the late Jean Stein, author, socialite, and generous benefactor of the arts. The concert will also serve as the d├ębut of Saint Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal Church's own resident chamber ensemble, the Melius Consort, New York's newest, most exciting Baroque ensemble under the baton and artistic direction of organist and choirmaster James Kennerley. Melius Consort, alongside the renowned Choir of Saint Ignatius of Antioch -  itself made up of some of the finest singers in New York - will  perform Baroque masterpieces in one of the city's most sublime acoustical settings.

Our inaugural program will feature music by Baroque rockstar, George Frederick Handel. We open with the buoyant, sparkling overture to "Alcina," first performed in London in 1735, followed by the opera's famous aria "Di cor mio quanto t'amai" performed by soprano Chloe Holgate. James Kennerley will be the soloist for Handel's Organ Concerto in F, composed so that Handel himself could show off his keyboard chops during the intermissions of his oratorios. The concert concludes with the fiery, virtuosic Dixit Dominus, a setting of Psalm 110 that was composed in 1707 when Handel was just 21 and living in Italy, the birthplace of opera. Drama is at the center of every movement of the Dixit Dominus, from the fiery opening string figures, the elegant soprano solo movement, Tecum principium, and the virtuosic finale.

Don't miss this inaugural concert featuring some of New York's most exciting artists.
