Los Angeles Recorder Orchestra: L.A. MOSAIC

Conducted by Thomas Axworthy. Los Angeles is world famous for images: the beach, the Hollywood sign, iconic palm lined streets, but there is so much more. Close your eyes and listen to the sounds of the beach: wind, waves, birds, and palm trees rustling. The ever present noise of traffic: rumbling freeways, aircraft overhead, and perhaps sirens from a car chase. Finally there are the people from many cultures speaking in multitude of accents and languages. All these things have mixed together to create a richness of sound here, the “LA Mosaic”. In this concert LARO will be premiering several commissioned works that represent this mosaic. Chas Warren’s Ascent to the City of Angeles will start the program, and LA Triptych by Glen Shannon gives a musical tour of 3 thriving communities in LA.

Free Concert - Donations Appreciated For further information, www.larohome.org  or call Thomas Axworthy (Music Director) 562-773-2265

LARO is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent provided by law

Tesserae's Annual Fundraiser: Square Pegs 

For this year’s celebration, we would like to acknowledge a few “musical misfits”: pieces that we really, really want – or have wanted — to perform, but which do not fit in with the rest of the season programming. We begin with Alessandro Scarlatti’s Concerto for Recorder in A Minor, followed by two pieces that each represent unique programming challenges: Marin Marais’ Le Tableau de l’Opération de la Taille – the baroque soundtrack to a bladder-stone removal – and CPE Bach’s Trio Sonata for Bass Recorder and Viola, a piece that still today raises the question: Why? We conclude on slightly more familiar turf with Bach’s Harpsichord Concerto in D Minor, a piece that has been sitting on the Tesserae wish list for far too long!

The performance will be followed by a delicious reception catered by gingergrass.
 Tickets to the fundraiser are $100, with all proceeds helping to support our upcoming season.  You may purchase your tickets here                          ( https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4335163) , or RSVP to fundraiser@tesseraebaroque.org and make a donation to Tesserae on the day itself. The address for the private recital venue in Brentwood will be furnished upon reservation.You may also use the opportunity to join one of our higher donor circles, many of which reward you with free season tickets!

Learn more about our different donor levels ( https://tesseraebaroque.org/1351-2/  ).We thank all of our supporters for playing such an important role in keeping great music available to all in our community. We could not do this without you!

Guts Baroque Duo: Les Maîtres du violon: The Rise of the French Violin Sonata

Sylvia Schwartz, baroque violin, and John Ott, viola da gamba. 

Right around the beginning of the eighteenth century, a change was beginning to happen in the music of France. The graceful dance suite of Lully’s time, so beloved by the late Louis XIV, was slowly being supplanted by the Italian sonata. Many French violinists and other musicians traveled to Italy to study with Corelli and other great masters, then returned to France, bringing with them Italian aesthetics and musical forms. As a result, the solo music written for violin gradually shifted towards the Corellian sonata, while still retaining the sublimely intricate and delicate ideas of the French Baroque. Join us to hear more about the composer-performers of the time and revel in the music that came out of this transition. 

PROGRAM: Violin sonatas by Rebel, Francoeur, Bouvard, Leclair, and Jacquet de la Guerre, and a sonata for bass viol solo by de Machy. More details and notes at gutsbaroque.com/concerts.

Ensemble Vocatrix and Heidi Duckler Dance : Hildegard Herself
A fusion of modern dance and Medieval music, performed by six dancers from HDD and three singers from Ensemble Vocatrix: Sarah Beaty, Katina Mitchell, and Andrea Zomorodian.

Hildegard von Bingen, a woman ahead of her time, was a German Benedictine abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, visionary, polymath and is considered to be the founder of scientific natural history. Her work spanned the theological, artistic, and scientific fields in a time when women rarely had the opportunity to speak up.

Following The Hour of Hildegard, Duckler’s first installment which explored Hildegard’s book on health and healing, Hildegard Herself will focus on the many elements that made this Saint a radical innovator. The performance will take place in St. John’s historic Parish Hall, courtyard garden, and central Cathedral, where guests are invited to experience Hildegard’s feminist spirit and legacy. The work will explore the multiple dimensions of her innovations in the realms of healing, music, language, and justice.

Choreographed & Directed by Heidi Duckler, the Hildegard Herself features HDD company dancers Tess Hewlett, Haylee Nichele, Rafael Quintas, Himerria Wortham, Dominique McDougal and William Jay Ylvisaker. Collaborator, Dr. Christopher Gravis, Canon for Music Ministry and Cathedral Arts at St. John's, will direct live singers from the Ensemble Vocatrix in Hildegard's original work, and Sarah Belle Reid will play prepared trumpet with a Minimally Invasive Gesture Sensing Interface (MIGSI) device.

Not only will it be featuring the “energetic and awesome power” of the 36 voice choir, but the orchestra will be entirely composed of time period instruments from the 18th century!

Please join us as we sing the Hallelujah Chorus, and sing with us during our orchestral sing along, allowing a jaw dropping beginning to the Holiday season.

Written in 1742, Handel advertised the piece as "A Sacred Oratorio" to diffuse the objections many operatic composers received at the time that their subject matter was too suggestive or racy. One reason it was debuted in Dublin rather than London was to stay away from Anglican bishops whom he beleived would protest it.
