Before opera there was the madrigal comedy; unstaged but dramatic collections of short vocal pieces which, when sung consecutively, told a story. Adriano Banchieri’s Contrappunto Bestiale and continuo (accompanied by lute or harpsichord) madrigals will be on this program

Mad Madrigals

Our Mission

Our mission is to educate, inspire and foster music appreciation on the part of the public through historically informed performances of Baroque chamber music. The Seicento Baroque Ensemble emphasizes education for singers, instrumentalists, and the public of all ages about the Baroque period in history, in particular its music, composers, compositions and performance practices.

A note from our Artistic Director ♫

I am deeply grateful for those that attended at our recent concert, From Luther to Bach: Music of the Reformation. Our concert selections explored the inner agitations of the soul and the interesting journey of a man whose bold thinking influenced society long after his passing. We enjoyed learning the repertoire and discovering its prolific and grounding poignancy, and hope you enjoyed the experience along with us.

Thank you for your ongoing support of the arts, of Baroque music, and attending our concerts.  We are grateful for such supportive and receptive audiences like you.  Wising you a good holiday, and I look forward to seeing you at our Madrigals concert in March.
