[UPDATE: July 15: In our unexpected world (these days) we have a change of program for July 17th. Chatham Baroque’s violinist will not be unable to attend due to unexpected circumstances –but we are fortunate that this flexible trio will instead include soprano Pascale Beaudin, from Quebec. Ms Beaudin has worked with Chatham Baroque on regular and numerous occasions and has been featured on many of their ‘home’ concert series in Pittsburgh, most recently a program featuring Pergolesi's Stabat Mater with Reginald Mobley.]
Chatham Baroque is Andrew Fouts (violin), Patricia Halverson (viola da gamba), and Scott Pauley (theorbo & baroque guitar).
The ensemble has toured across the United States as well as in South America and Mexico, the Virgin Islands, and Canada. The New York Times has praised their “colorful virtuosity”; the Washington Post called them “musically impeccable”; the Chicago Tribune, “a splendid period-instruments ensemble”; and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette proclaims, “Pound for pound, you aren’t going to find a better ensemble … than Chatham Baroque,”.
Chatham Baroque collaborates with the Pittsburgh Renaissance & Baroque concert series which since 1969 has brought distinguished early music artists and ensembles from across the country and around the world to perform in Pittsburgh. The concert series spans approximately 1000 years of music from the Medieval period to the Classical period, and the performances range in size from solo recitals to baroque orchestras.
The "Art of the Trio” program includes music from the Renaissance, Baroque and early Classical Periods, with unique instrumentation to match: to the violin and baroque guitar are added the period instruments of viola da gamba, an instrument combining qualities of both a guitar and cello, and theorbo –a large lute with the neck extended to hold long bass strings.
The Art of the Trio
On July 17th The Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Society welcomes the exquisite trio of Chatham Baroque, celebrating the passion and depth of the music of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque, and Early Classical periods through vivid and compelling performances and educational experiences.
