This lively and dramatic quartet of singers from the Philharmonia Chorale¬óconsisting of soprano, alto, tenor and baritone¬ówill perform a variety of popular early repertoire from the Baroque period, demonstrating what it takes to deliver ensemble singing at its best. The Chorale, a professional vocal ensemble, collaborates regularly with the celebrated Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, based in San Francisco. The quartet will be supported by Chorale director/harpsichordist Bruce Lamott and a continuo cello. All music lovers are welcome to attend this special free program, whether you are a singer or not.
