The members of Repast Baroque, Amelia Roosevelt, violin, John Mark Rozendaal, viola da gamba & Avi Stein, harpsichord, have been acclaimed by the New York Times for its "vital performances" and “robust” playing. Repast is a collaboration of three period-instrument virtuosi presenting vivid renditions of music of the baroque era. Each member has an active career in historical performance and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the trio’s programs. Repast enjoys frequent and fruitful collaborations with leading period instrument players and vocalists in order to explore the vast, masterful repertoire of the baroque era. The group’s name, meaning a meal or a feast, is a double-entendre: out of the revival of past music comes a delectable, spiritually nourishing experience.
Founded in New York City, the ensemble was a finalist in the Early Music America/Naxos Recording Competition in 2003. Since then the group has performed at Bargemusic, the Early Music Society of the Islands in Victoria, B.C., Museum Concerts of Rhode Island, the Times Center, Midtown Concerts, the New York Early Music Celebration, the Staller Center for the Arts, the Lyceum Concert Series, and the Brooklyn Friends Meeting House. Repast currently presents a concert series at Baruch Performing Arts Center. Future engagements include performances at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
Repast’s musicians are committed educators. The group has presented workshops and lecture-demonstrations at Columbia University, the Brooklyn Queens Conservatory of Music, and Baruch College.
