Hailed as a “national artistic treasure” by The New York Times, soprano Julianne Baird joins the period instrument ensemble Pro Musica Rara for the season finale concert of Salon/Sanctuary. The performance will feature music from the milieus of Ben Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson and take place at the Abigail Adams Smith Auditorium of the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden, built in 1799 and once home to the daughter of President John Adams. The program will include sonatas by Alexander Reinagle (1756-1809) and Raynor Taylor (1747-1825), The Battle of Trenton by James Hewitt (1770-1827), opera arias by Gluck and Grétry, and The Star Spangled Banner's original lyrics as well as its alternate music by James Hewitt.

Founded in 2009 as an alternative to the conventional concert hall, Salon/Sanctuary has already attracted positive attention from The New York Times in its inaugural season. Now in its second season of presenting internationally renowned artists in intimate venues, our roster of artists includes Metropolitan Opera countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, violinist Monica Huggett, soprano Julianne Baird, tenor Rufus Müller, organist/conductor John Scott, Juilliard415, Sinfonia New York, The Clarion Music Society, Armitage Gone! Dance, among others.

"one of the most extraordinary voices in the service of early music that this generation has produced. She possesses a natural musicianship which engenders singing of supreme expressive beauty." – The New York Times

"Julianne Baird is a vocal phenomenon. . . a rare and wondrous voice guided by an extraordinary musical intelligence." – Fanfare

"If Spring sunlight could be translated into sound, it would probably be a lot like Julianne Baird." – Opera News

Can we please set up a meetup for this? I was at their last event and found it not only an artistically inspiring concert, but an intellectually stimulating and socially engaging evening. I am absolutely attending this next one.
