Music for October 22

And beyond

All are invited to a special concert at St. Michael’s on Sunday, October 29 at 4 PM. World class artists Lisa Terry (viola da gamba) and Webb Wiggins (harpsichord) will perform several Baroque suites by Couperin. Lisa and Webb have explored and performed music together for several decades, most often with the Dryden Ensemble in Princeton, New Jersey. François Couperin’s magnificent suites for viola da gamba and continuo have been the focus of their concerts at Peabody, at the Boston Early Music Festival fringe, and now on this West Coast tour. (We are the only Portland stop!) In addition to the duo’s presentation of the profound A major suite and the towering E minor suite, published in 1728, Webb will perform two pieces by Armand-Louis Couperin, opening a door into the astounding tastes of the next generation. $20 suggested donation at the door. (Fun fact: Webb was Hannah’s harpsichord professor at Oberlin Conservatory!)
