Welcome to our 2013-14 season
Baroque Northwest is pleased to share with you our fifteenth season of innovative concerts. Our unique programs will focus primarily on music written between 1650 and 1750 that features historical flutes, lutes, and basso continuo. For our program of Baroque music from New Orleans and New France the concert includes sacred and vernacular vocal music. You'll get to see how the two came together in colonial Louisiana.
Concert descriptions may be found here. All events are held at Trinity Parish Church, in the Parish Hall.
This year we are joind by Montreal-based cellist (and Seattle native) Elinor Frey. Elinor has been hailed as an "Impeccable cellist" by Montreal's La Presse, "A superb cellist" by the Syracuse Post-Standard, and an "unquestionable and robust talent" by the Giornale di Brescia. Her Baroque CD, titled La voce del violoncello, was released in 2013 on the Belgian label Passacaille.
Our other guest artist this season is mezzo-soprano Janene Nelson. An Oregon native, Janene's performances have been described as “gorgeously sung.” She has performed throughout the Pacific Northwest in operatic, orchestral, chamber music, recital, and choral settings. Dr. Nelson is on the voice faculty at Western Oregon University and lives in Eugene, Oregon, with her two children.
