SYNOPSIS:

Music City Baroque presents a free public concert of vocal and instrumental music on Sunday, April 27 at 3:00 p.m. at St. George Episcopal Church, 4715 Harding Road, Nashville (Belle Meade) 37205.  Exploring the early Baroque period, this program features early vocal music from the cusp of the Baroque period. Guest conductor Dr. Tucker Biddlecombe, Director of Choral activities at the Blair School of Music, Vanderbilt University, will lead vocal music by the Franco-Flemish composers Attaignant, Ockeghem, Le Jeune, Josquin, and Sweelinck. The concert also includes French instrumental music, with a lush string version of Jean-Philippe Rameau's Sixième Concert and a concerto grosso, "Dulce Somnium," by Georg Muffat.  The performance is part of the In Excelsis series at St. George’s. 

Music City Baroque, now in its tenth season, offers ensemble and chamber music of the 17th and 18th centuries played on period instruments, in the style the composers would have heard, with all its original color and passion.  Performers are drawn from members of the Nashville Symphony and faculties of the schools of music at Vanderbilt, MTSU and Belmont.
