Ensemble Caprice rethinks Baroque music for modern times – Grand Valley Lanthorn

Three years ago, EMSI and Ensemble Caprice agreed to a series of three concerts. The first was to feature the music of Bach, the second of Vivaldi and the third of Handel. We have been treated to two extraordinary and exciting concerts and this concert will be a fitting finale to the series.

There has been a tangible connection between the ensemble and our audience. Last year, several members of the group, including Artistic Director Matthias Maute, enthused that the concert was the highlight of their year, as they could feel the engagement and rapt attention of the audience during the performance. It’s no surprise to us, as we know that our audience is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and appreciative.

Be part of that magical experience for this final instalment of our series with Ensemble Caprice and Ensemble ArtChoral. (And bring along your voice to join in the final chorus from the Anthem for the Foundling Hospital, the ever-popular Hallelujah Chorus.)
