The Sebastians Baroque Orchestra performs Nov. 22

The Sebastians  Baroque Orchestra will perform Sunday, Nov. 22, at 5 p.m., at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, 954 Lake Avenue, Greenwich.

The Sebastians are a dynamic and vital musical ensemble specializing in music of the baroque and classical eras. Lauded as “everywhere sharp-edged and engaging” (The New York Times), the Sebastians have also been praised for their “well-thought-out articulation and phrasing” (Early Music Review) and “elegant string playing… immaculate in tuning and balance” (Early Music Today).

Music by Vivaldi, Purcell, and Blow will be on the program along with the stunning soprano Awet Andemicael in Handel’s recently-discovered Gloria. The “cherry on top” is the Sebastians signature rendition of Vivaldi’s Folia.

Winners of the Audience Prize at the 2012 Early Music America Baroque Performance Competition, the Sebastians were also finalists in the 2011 York International Early Music Competition and the 2011 Early Music America/Naxos Recording Competition. They have participated in the Carnegie Hall Professional Training Workshop with L’Arpeggiata, and have performed at Music Matters (LaGrua Center in Stonington, CT).

Tickets, at $40, may be purchased at the door on the day of the performance or by calling 203-661-5526, ext 21 for advance reservations.
