Ach bleib bei uns, Herr Jesu Christ, BWV 649
Passacaglia, BWV 582
Salon/Sanctuary offers an opportunity to hear early music in the kinds of spaces for which it was intended. Sacred music is presented in the intimate Church of the Epiphany, while salon repertoire is heard in the 1799 Abigail Adams Smith Auditorium at the Mount Vernon House and Museum. In addition to the five concerts of the Salon/Sanctuary series, the elegant townhouse of the Kosciuszko Foundation is the setting for a gala benefit featuring music for royal entertainment.
Internationally celebrated artists-- organist and conductor John Scott, baroque violinist Monica Huggett, and mezzo Jennifer Lane-- join many of New York's most respected interpreters of baroque and classical repertoire, including the Clarion Music Society, Sinfonia New York, soprano Jessica Gould, fortepianist Audrey Axinn, Repast Baroque Ensemble, and the Dodd String Quartet, in a new chamber music series on Manhattan's East Side.
