The 2016-17 schedule includes concerts in Boulder, Denver and Longmont. Some highlights:

  • Oct. 14 & 16: A “surround-sound” program, called Concertos and Chorales Contextualized, that places the audience in the middle of strings, singers and a cathedral organ.
  • Dec. 8 & 10: A program exploring music of the Viennese Baroque with harpsichord and other Baroque period instruments.
  • March 16, 17 & 18: Concerts exploring Spanish Baroque music featuring Richard Savino, a Grammy-winning guitarist and lute player who will perform on the theorbo, a period instrument.
  • May 21: A “greatest hits” concert featuring the festival’s chamber orchestra playing music by Bach, Vivaldi and Handel.

One of the highlights from last season was a series of concerts called “Venice on Fire.” It featured electrified instruments interpreting pieces by Italian Baroque composers. Check out this footage of the Venice on Fire musicians playing music by composer Barabara Strozzi in the CPR Performance Studio:
