Members of the Music on the Hill Chamber Chorus–12 pro voices–perform music of Bach, Buxtehude, Charpentier, Monteverdi, and more this Sunday, April 23, celebrating Easter with music of the Baroque. The concert takes place at 3 p.m. at the Wilton Presbyterian Church, located at 48 New Canaan Rd..
Artistic director Ellen Dickinson will conduct a program that features varied voicing–from duets to full ensemble, some performed a cappella, some with harpsichord and strings–but all chosen to take advantage of the beautifully resonant Wilton Presbyterian Church.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door; students are free. Tickets can be ordered online or by phone at 203.529.3133.
About the Music on the Hill Harpsichord
The harpsichord that will be used for Easter Baroque–a replica of a single-manual 1584 Hans Moermans original–is an instrument with its own storied history, one tied to two men’s passion for Baroque music and to the dawn of that music’s modern resurgence.
Read the full story of the instrument in an article from the Vocal Area Network, published when the harpsichord had its concert debut in Wilton in the spring of 2016.
