Our season finale

 

 

FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 6:00 PM
An Evening with Zachary Carrettín

Early music performance presents a unique challenge of preparing music that can be up to a half-millennium old, and playing it for twenty-first-century ears. Zachary Carrettín, Artistic and Executive Director of Boulder Bach Festival, has said this: “I’ve spent thirty years thinking about treatises, original instruments, and the score. Questions of source material, instrument set-up and playing technique, and looking at the score over time, are all wonderful ways to open this Pandora’s Box known as historically informed performance practice.”

We are proud to inaugurate our new An Evening with… experience by welcoming back this incredible artist to HHCC. The evening will feature a wonderful performance, in addition to a conversation with the artist. HHCC Board member Ron Roschke will curate the conversation. The concert will be extended to 75 minutes for this event. Plan on enjoying a remarkable evening of beautiful music and new insights into the intricacies of early music performance!
