Musica Pacifica returns to Costal Concerts, having performed in March 2010 when the audience was practically dancing in the aisles in response. This time these Baroque music specialists will have with them David Greenberg on violin, a master of the Cape Breton fiddling style, who entranced the audience when he performed with the Red Priest Baroque Band at Coastal Concerts in April of 2017.
Their lighthearted program will feature Caledonian airs and Scottish dances. Soulful tunes and merry jigs will be heard alongside more studied compositions of Henry Purcell, Jean-Féry Rebel, Arcangelo Corelli, Georg Muffat, and Antonio Vivaldi. In addition, the music of ancient Scottish composers such as James Oswald, “Red Rob” Mackintosh, and Niel Gow will delightfully defy classification either classical or folk music.
Tickets are $35 general admission, $40 for premium seats front and center. Available by cash or check at the door, or in advance by clicking here.
