“Music of American Moravians" w/Les Sirénes (18th century from Central Europe)

The acclaimed period-instrument chamber ensemble Musicians of the Old Post Road continues its 25th anniversary season with a program entitled "With Liberty and Music for All: Music of the American Moravians," featuring fascinating and rarely heard vocal and instrumental music from the 18th-century American Moravian community of Salem, North Carolina. Joined by the vocal duo "Les Sirènes" (Kristen Watson and Kathryn Mueller, sopranos) in works by Moravian composers, the ensemble will also perform instrumental chamber music by Haydn, J.C. F. Bach and others.

Arriving from Central Europe in the 1740s, the Moravians established communities in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Ohio. Music had a central role in their lives and activities. When they immigrated to America, they brought with them thousands of music manuscripts by European composers (such as Haydn and J.C.F. Bach). They also composed music that is of impressively high quality that included copious vocal works with instrumental ensemble and chamber music. Musicians of the Old Post Road will present a sampling of these musical treasures, including beautiful and expressive vocal solos and duets with instrumental ensemble by Moravian composers Christian Geisler, Johann Freyt, J. F. Peter, Johannes Herbst, and others. The program will also feature instrumental chamber music that was performed at the Moravians musical gatherings. These will include a flute quartet by Joseph Haydn, a sinfonia by J. C. F. Bach, a trio sonata for viola, cello, and continuo by Johann Daniel Grimm, and a string trio by the Moravian composer John Antes.

    Hi all, Looking forward to seeing you all at this concert! I'd encourage you to buy your tickets in advance using the NOMAD discount code online (more details above). Since it's general admission, let's plan to meet at least 15 min. before to get good seats as a group. Let's meet by the ticket/will call table in the lobby. I'll be working this concert, so you'll easily spot me there. Afterwards, there is a Meet & Greet reception with the artists, so we can hang around and get to know the group better. GETTING THERE:
    Public Transportation:
    Old South is located at the Copley stop on the Green Line of the T. We are also a short walk from the Back Bay station on the Orange Line (from the station, walk two blocks north on Dartmouth Street). Bus routes 9, 10, 39, and 55 also stop in Copley Square. Use the MBTA’s Trip Planner for specific schedule routes and times.

    See you there!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
