In this season’s finale collaboration with Seattle’s own Byrd Ensemble, co-directed by Kris Kwapis and Markdavin Obenza, we travel to Venice to celebrate virtuosic music written by the Red Priest. In addition to his beloved Gloria written for the famed Ospedale della Pietà orphanage in Venice, the program includes his Concerto for Trumpet and Oboe, and his dazzling Bassoon Concerto in B-flat major, “La Notte” RV 501.

As part of our season finale we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Seattle Baroque Orchestra! For these milestone performances SBO will be in collaboration with the Byrd Ensemble on a program titled “Vivaldi’s Venice.”

And to further mark this occasion, the founding directors of the orchestra, violinist Ingrid Matthews and harpsichordist Byron Schenkman, will join us and perform one of their favorite duos, the Sonata No. 2 by Johann Heinrich Schmelzer!
