Winter's Eve Lady of the Lake
As the days grow shorter, our spirits are drawn to rest and renewal. Even as the pace of our lives accelerates to handle the stresses of our seasonal celebrations, our natural instincts urge us to retreat into the darkness. In this darkness we dream and regenerate, making ready for new beginnings, which come as the days lengthen and lighten. In this performance, Lady of the Lake's music recognizes this renewal of the soul and celebrates the fire of light and life.

Voice of the Cello
Dark, rich, and sonorous, and also bright, sweet, and expressive, the cello is the most versatile of instruments. In this perennial favorite concert, Sacramento Baroque Soloists' cellists perform repertoire of the Baroque era written for one, two, and three cellos, accompanied by harpsichord and organ.

In the midst of the revelry of 18th-Century Venice, Antonio Vivaldi drew travelers from all over Europe to hear the performances of his concertos. His concertos have an energy and sweet expressiveness that have survived centuries. Sacramento Baroque Soloists present a program of Vivaldi Concertos including "Spring" from The Four Seasons, Il Proteo (concerto for violin and cello), and a hauntingly beautiful bassoon concerto featuring baroque bassoonist David Wells.
